SAN FRANCISCO - Robert Koch Gallery presents the debut exhibition of Visible Cities, a series of large-format color photographs by Canadian photographer Ljubodrag Andric. Shot over a period of ten years and spanning the
globe, Andric’s painterly, color field abstractions reveal an ambiguous, meditative cityscape.
Ljubodrag 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 – his mother
an actress, his father a writer, and his brother a painter. In 1981, at the age of sixteen, photography become
his main focus. In 1988, while studying literature in Belgrade, Andric first exhibited at the Modern Art Gallery in
Belgrade. The work for the exhibition was produced in Italy and dealt with the relationship between space and
architecture, which remained at the core of his exploration ever since. For over twenty years, inspired by
extensive travel, Andric’s work has revolved around recontextualizing the urban landscape. In 2002 Andric
relocated to Toronto where he currently lives and works, and in 2005 renationalized as a Canadian citizen.
