‘Dark matter’ is a multi sensory installation making the ethereal quality of sound & space tangible. It changes an empty room into an infinite expanse as every sound made by the audience echos like ripples within a 3D weblike canvas of dark string.
The American painter Paul Jackson Pollock once said “Every true painter paints what he is”, and for Canadian- born Haitian artist Allan Andre (1987, Ottawa, Canada) this statement rings especially true. Believing that we all leave a mark in history by amusing, inspiring and challenging our own spheres of influence in a way that will ripple through future generations, he states. After having lived in Canada and studied graphic design in the U.S. and meeting many different people, I’ve learned that the arts are a human necessity. It’s the fuel that drives us in all other facets of life. Whether you sing, dance, cook, we all leave our signature on the canvas we call the human experience. I do this through painting, drawing, sculpture and media installation but we all have something to offer to the world.
