Halfway Between Painting and Sculpture, Andrew Dadson

Suburban Suprematism is the title of the third exhibition that Andrew Dadson presents in the gallery in Turin. The title itself reveals two of the main sources of Dadson’s artistic research: the empty, liminal spaces of suburban Vancouver, where he lives and works, and the theory of Suprematism, conceived by Kasimir Malevich in the first decades of the Twentieth century. Evoked by these square monochromatic paintings that deny any kind of representation. Dadson’s work draws from but is far from the Suprematist imperative of  flat uniformly painted surfaces, geometric rigor, and detachment from the bonds of reality.
