My engagement with visual arts and especially with painting began as a concentration exercise, which in time grew into a very efficient way to put the abundant chaos of my thoughts into order. It is not only the need to express my mind and feelings, but also to convey information into a format I can apprehend better.
Painting isn't just an occupation to me; it is a necessity, it is the way to define myself; it is my quest to understand existence as a part of its ambience, should be a society, an ocean, or the cosmos.
I aspire to share the image of the world the way I perceive it, a world where “All is colour”.
Of all mediums, I prefer oil, because of its vibrant “honesty”; its ability to preserve its character from the moment it is applied till after it dries.
I put colour in gradual layers, one over another, without them mixing together. Letting each layer to rest and dry before applying the next, allowing them to coexist on the same canvas. This procedure goes on until I am able to see what I wish to state.
A finished painting is a conclusion containing all: the initial notion, my perception of it, reflections and feelings on it.
My current work focuses on the points of intersection between sound, image and spatial analysis. The conjunction between image and sound has been a significant issue for artists and theorists since the ancient times. On this issue I am attempting a fresh approach. Considering the space that surrounds us; ambience, as a composition of sounds. Ambience constitutes of “music” produced by us and anything around us, every existing thing produces sound and every sound reflects on surrounding entities and then altogether produce that “music”. These sounds and their composition, in my perception, appear as colours. I use my palette and variations of basic geometry shapes, to transmit those soundpictures on canvas. I try to retain all the elements of the ambience -without omitting my existence in it- and place them orderly in the abstract environment of my painting.
Since 2013, I am actively involved with the Athens Art Network, which was created by many restless independent art groups and has been trying to gather, organize and channel our energy to new alternative cultural structures.
