Andreas Ragnar Kassapis

Andreas Ragnar Kassapis in his artistic practice favors painting, sound and text. Repetition, the Nuance of memory, coating, layering, oscillation and gesture are the fields and practices that constitute the approach of his subjects. The subjects in his paintings are objects and usable products, usually depicted alone on wooden surfaces of small dimensions painted in oil.

“I do not know what Nuance is, yet I feel that it is a core around which I revolve. If I essayed a definition of this concept that passes through a phenomenological approach of the object, and, especially, the object represented in the technicalmechanical image, I would say that Nuance is an overtone of memory and part of a mnemonic trace existing inside images, images of memory and technical images. We should not consider Nuance as a tint in an image; it is a mechanism working inside images.”
