Love is nothing without feeling, and feeling is even less without love – this is the kind of thinking underpinning how Andrianomearisoa plays with the complex emotional experience reflected in his works. Warmth and earnestness meet a fragile cold, an isolated world of gloom and insecurity that also invites tenderness and wonder. Andrianomearisoa’s art contains echoes of geographical and spatial liberation and captivity; here, spatial constraints also allow scope for symbolic freedom enacted by the positions taken by the works and the viewer. Sharp edges and bright, even harsh light create shadows and reflections evocative of urban, harsh metropolitan architecture, while soft materials and living forms are suggestive of life, emotions, and freedom – a sensuous experience of the city setting and the living, breathing life found within.
