Andrei Petrov

Andrei Petrov headshotAs a child Andrei was involved in an accident that affected his memory and compelled him to paint. Ever since, he has been trying to reclaim what was lost through his work.

These paintings probe the distortion, incompleteness and rare moments of clarity in the shadows of memory.

Each piece portrays the intrinsic struggle and selective inclusion or exclusion of details in the process of recollection. At times, sharpness occurs in the rear of the picture plane while the out of focus, obscured areas, exist in a larger scale toward the foreground and make reference to the inscrutable nature of long and short term memory.

The unpredictability of these acts of memory are expressed in these works.

Andrei Petrov has had solo exhibitions over the past 14 years, making him of the best established artists out there. He has taken part in over 30 national and international group shows. Petrov has also done commissioned works and has made several film and TV appearances.
