February 27 – March 22, 2014
Andrés Ferrandis is known for his evocative abstract paintings redolent with the traces of perception, what the artist calls “footprints left behind.” His new constructions of collage on paper utilize photography, fragments of text, and cut-paper organic and geometric forms that seem to drift and swirl through landscapes of memory.
Varied in their materials, the new collage works also introduce another hybridity: elements are echoed in the compositions that bridge Ferrandis’ painting history with his design practice in furniture and architecture. Neo-baroque flourishes, a bold but highly controlled palette, and pop art tactics of appropriation are also present.
Ferrandis’ first exhibitions were accompanied by Bancaixa awards from Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno and Fundacion Bancaja Valencia, followed by travels in Cuba, New York, and Madrid. A resident of Miami since 2002, he has shared his time between Florida and Costa Rica for much of the past decade.Numinous is Ferrandis’ first solo exhibition at Ruiz-Healy Art.
