For over twenty years Ljubodrag Andric's work has revolved around recontextualizing the urban landscape. Visible Cities, a series of large-format color photographs, were photographed over a period of ten years and span the globe. Andric's painterly, color field abstractions reveal an ambiguous, meditative cityscape. As Andric describes, "This work evolved from an early awareness that just as it is possible to have content without subject, it is possible to have context without object. Put differently, context is everything - all is figure and all is ground. My work evolves around the exploration of relationships, not of measure, but of influence. I am not interested in isolated incidents and tensions but rather a sum."

Andric, who is of Italian decent, was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia in 1965 to a family of artists. In 1988, while studying literature in Belgrade, Andric first exhibited at the Modern Art Gallery in Belgrade. The work for the exhibition dealt with the relationship between space and architecture, which remained at the core of his exploration ever since. In 2002 Andric relocated to Toronto where he currently lives and works, and in 2005 became a Canadian citizen.
