Andreu’s work documents the morphology of identity. His artistic investigations are demonstrated through several modes. One consists of scenes formed by paper boats and depicts relationships and group dynamics. These narratives explore hope and melancholy, belonging and isolation. In community murals, paintings and prints, they emphasize social diversity and unity.
Another mode is the abstract illusionism of “Hope, Memory and Desire”, a series that uses times of day, seasons and weather as analogues to emotions. The series of prints also include shaped canvasses and explores the relationship between self and environment. The series is a study on structures of consciousness.
