AP Contemporary proudly presents “Memory of Nonexistent Landscapes” by Armando Rabadán, exhibition runs from 20 November 2015 to 5 January 2016.

Spanish artist Armando Rabadán emphasises his concept on multiverses in his Micro-Chrome series. Micro-Chrome series recreates a pictorial code that connects three elements: scale, colour and music. Rabadán’s paintings offer the audience the memory of nonexistent horizon with the conclusion that every landscape is a state of mind.

“Scale” – In the correct distance, the artwork manifests itself in its completion which covers the collection as a whole. When the spectator is close, each square is an abstract three-dimensional space which separates from the whole compilation.

“Colour” – Rabadán is interested in the nature of colour and he paints with oil, acrylic and spray to apply many colours at the same time in Micro-Chrome series. He believes colour is a language of painting and it is associated with harmony, melody and rhythm which leads to the last element.

“Music” – Each square is a note of musical composition and the whole work serves as a pictorial-sound code. Rabadán suggests that a flat square is a music tone, a square with two colours is a semitone and those consist of more than two colours are “colour-noise”.

Rabadán was born in 1986 in Seville, Spain. He lived and worked in Istanbul, Turkey for 4 years before and now he is working between Seville and Istanbul. He has more than 10 solo and group exhibitions in Spain and Turkey and his works were included in more than 10 publications. This is the first time for Armando Rabadán to showcase his collection in Asia-Pacific region and we invite you to travel together in the dimensional multiverses.
