Ciaccia Levi is pleased to announce the first solo show of Belgian artist Amber Andrews. The exhibition presents a new series of paintings inspired by the artist’ s travels to Italy.

„Andrews draws the viewer into a world of seemingly familiar images, invoking classic Italian architecture and abundant references to art history. These “digested“ images are then playfully interwoven with other elements — Sicilian myth, the writings of Bocaccio, the artist’s own experiences.

The resulting images convey themes of grief, love, and loneliness, but also hope, that feel particularly relevant to our current times.
