Featuring a stunning capacity to create unbelievable depths and spatial volumetry with no apparent anchor to the figurative representation, the artist invites the spectator in her own inner laboratory, where secondary, invisible, mysterious and transparent realities replace recognizable forms from the visible world. Pipings and braids inspired, it could seem, to industrial landscapes reveries, cylinders, geometric forms and vague reminiscences or organic allusions – all these elements compose Andrea Tivadar’s painterly universe, one that the artist de nes as “a space of all possibilities”, in an approach that “asserts the purity and simplicity of things”.
