Although the artistic work of Andrea Kvas is basically located in the field of painting, its further designation goes far beyond that. Only a small number of Kvas’s works correspond to the conventional idea of a painting; the majority do not allow themselves to be so tightly framed. The work of the young Italian oscillates between painting, sculpture, and expansive installations, and encircles the broad field of abstraction.
With the exhibitions described in the book, in Florence (at Museo Marino Marini) and Berlin (at Chert gallery space), it becomes truly difficult to think of Andrea Kvas’s works as individual pieces, and one must instead focus on how they function as groups which as a whole generate the very concept of the artwork.
