Line – Andrea Leoni (IT)
A line develops and marks its surrounding space in search of a composition strategy: it multiplies, enlarges, stretches increasing its size up to create more and more complex shapes. It invades all the space around striving to expand further, yet it will go all the way back, forced by a representation limit, to its simple and basic initial state.
Born in 1971, Andrea Leoni is a painter, musician and video maker. From the beginning of his research in the fields of painting, graphics and digital art, he has been strongly interested in representing microcosms such as dynamic and geometric core elements as well as in exploring the human world, in line with the surrealist lesson. For several years, he has been involved both in painting and video experimentation, creating visual and sound works dealing with his favourite subjects such as the incessant play of fullness and emptiness, dynamic expansion and calm, and the complex relationship between aspiration and limits, interconnection and individuality.
