Russian born artist, Andrei Roiter suspends these painted still lives like sacred, single objects to be considered. "Time Capsule" (seen above) is a mish mash of object roiled up in a nice package. A lot of Roiter's images have a feeling of old, warn out past lives. You can really feel the history in the objects. I want to know more of the story behind these objects, because there is a narrative, all be it missing or hidden, in these images. I see a refined Dada look in the work, because of the collage reference and the "found object" feeling of the images. Roiter lives works in Amsterdam and New York. Ah, the life of an artist. Roiter just took down a show at the Moscow branch of the Regina Gallery.
