“Meditations, Myths and Muses” is a dual exhibition between Andrew Kochie and architectural designer/artist Steve Quevedo, exploring the shared languages between proportion, light, harmony, order, and materiality.
The exhibition examines the interface where cross discourse takes place between the artists and their subsequent investigations into the ideas of meditation, myths and muses. The works mediate between abstraction and hyper-realism. As a catalyst, the abstract paintings served to explore spatial realms, whichhave thengiven way to more definitive imagery, employing trompe l’oiel, narrative, and emotion.
Andrew Kochie explores meditations with the use of acrylics and varnish techniques in a methodology which derives from his experience and formal training in the making of violins, violas, and cellos.
Steve Quevedo investigates myths and muses using the process of marmorino, a Venetian plaster technique with integrated color pigments, graphite and paint. Moving between abstract compositions and figurative works, the paintings incorporate architectonic compositions based on collages and perspectival capricci.
The combined works integrate the integral role of surface, line, field, proportion, light, spatial depth and the innate nature of their specific media.
