... Alberto Andreis set designer and painter has populated his paintings of architectures. This is not high gratacieli outlining the legendary Manhattan skyline but architecture "hidden", not usually the focus of attention. These are the structures that hold the iron bridges, scaffolding used for the restoration of buildings, construction of industrial recycling of refuse. Nothing spectacularly beautiful, but that becomes fascinating seen from the eyes of Andreis that creates detailed and solid transpositions of paintings (acrylics on hardboard to be precise) where the thickness of the color makes it very personal story ... ... The solution l ' He has found irony on, in the game that accompanies these works. Andreis choose a lunar aspect, metaphysical NY seizing as we wrote the hidden side of the city and removing it from the swarm of people belonging to his ways at all times of day and night ... ...

I was fine with Andreis continues Sgarbi -: in addition to being an intelligent man and to have its own interpretation of the works of autonomy, is capable and practical. " And speaking of his collaboration with Alberto Andreis, he adds: "Once you find a theme and discussed it together, creates a scene, prevailing aspect of my work as a director. Basic references are to the classic Italian tradition, but with an abstract interpretation of the thought, the result of the ability of reworking of ideas shared by both "... Stefania Provincial
