André Kan – Nautilla
Inspired by contemporary architectures and their relevance to humans on a psychological level, “Nautilla” depicts an intricate yet free-floating structure that begins dispersing from one another; depicting what the robotic anatomy of the heart is. Using inspirations from Japanese Anime culture, and its vibrantly saturated aesthetic qualities. These colorful geometries beat at a pulse, creating a signifier, and a symbol of what “Nautilla” is. To the viewer, the piece is a rendition/interpretation of being “helpful, adaptable, and most importantly, strengthful.
About the Artist
Enlivened by his interest in spatial structures and interconnectivity, Andre Kan’s paintings serve as excitable blueprints for a possible reality. Each work depicts the artists’ signature imaginative building blocks that converge and begin to build upon each other and strengthening each other towards an ever-transforming space. Kan’s structures are substantial and complex but not yet anchored – they float suspended in his psychological space. In this way, Kan’s buildings remain a playful proposition for the viewer not yet tied to a specific place or function. With his dynamic formations, Kan propels us towards an ever-optimistic future where new connections and constructions have yet to materialize.
