Andy Hope 1930

Andy Hope 1930 defies classification in terms of both form and content thanks to the diversity of his artistic media – painting, drawing, collage, installation, sculpture, video, book, and object. Like no other artist, Hope develops a complex iconography, designs fictional worlds that move between the rubble of history and fantastic visions of the future, and, as he himself puts it, creates "labyrinthine infinity." His references include the history of modernism, especially suprematism, astrophysics, and philosophy of space and time, as well as pop culture sources, including the classic Hollywood films of the 1930s, B-movies, and the entire science-fiction genre in comics and film. For Nymphenburg Andy Hope 1930 developed Robin Dostoyevsky as a youthful hero, alternating between man and woman, hero and sidekick, good and evil.
