Lives and works in Girona
The artistic career of Andrés Siri began in the world of architecture, although he soon began to explore other disciplines, such as drawing, painting and photography. However, sculpture is the medium that best enables him to explore his architectural interests. He currently carries out this work in Girona.
In his work we can see his interest in elements related to the passage of time, such as the capture of fleeting moments and the perception of places according to how they are lit. Andrés Siri studies the perception of things and in a series of images reveals an everyday reality through the eyes of somebody seeing it for the first time, encouraging us to question what until now we thought was unquestionable. With a clear predilection for the study of shadows, he shows us the passage of time and different ways of perceiving elements.
Both in his pictorial work, in which he works with the superimposition of layers, and in his geometrical sculptures, made out of wood offcuts from buildings in which he works as an architect, we can observe the prominence he gives to textures and the way he highlights the different possibilities of interpretation of objects, constantly searching beyond colour, geometry and light for another truth hidden in the work.
He graduated from the University of Architecture and Urban Development of Buenos Aires and holds a Master’s Degree in Art Criticism and Communication from the University of Girona (2004).
