In the climate change era, the environment needs new symbols to inspire change. One artist is making that happen by creating artworks that focus on the relationship between humanity and nature, and between the built environment and the natural landscape. According to Andreco, “the objective of my research is to produce new visions, symbols and formulas, to make the invisible visible, showing the beauty of the hidden natural process as a contemporary alchemist that learns from the past.” The artwork production process is mostly site specific and influenced by the local people and environment, sometimes creating a delicate balance, others times a heavy impact. The artist transposes natural elements from the landscape to the built environment, changing the point of view, the perception and the conventional meaning of the objects, with the clear statement of “Nature as Art”. In this piece, geometric paint echoes the shape of the rocks below, while living vines climb up through the shapes to create an intriguing living wall.
