About ANDREI PETROV & Global Migration

“The forced displacement of millions of people from war torn homelands and border crossings into unwelcome arms has inspired these painted reactions.
In this series the vast color fields show the paths of these voyages through streams or patches of creamy impasto. Within unpredictable atmospheres, traces of movement crawl across, around and through layers of opalescent layers of transparent color. The contrast in scale between the rivers of thick color and the expansive land that surrounds them symbolizes how small the masses are in respect to the immense distances traversed.” -ANDREI PETROV, 2016

Based in New York City, ANDREI PETROV explores memory in his organic abstract paintings. His 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.Petrov’s paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally in prestigious collections and can be viewed at The Four Seasons Hotel in both Washington, DC and Punta Mita, Mexico, The Fairmont Hotel in Chicago and The Conrad Hotel, Miami. His paintings have also had cameos in the following films, The Royal Tenenbaums, Autumn in New York, Kate and Leopold, The Business of Strangers and Words and Lyrics. He is the featured visual artist 2016 for Music@Menlo.

Global Migration marks ANDREI PETROV’s forth consecutive solo exhibition at Morton Fine Art.
