Abstract Studies

Older abstract studies. In order of appearance:

Target 

The main inspiration for this painting was the murder of a young student (Alexis Grigoropoulos) by a policeman in Athens on December 2008, that began a huge wave of demonstrations against police brutality. This painting was exhibited along with many others at the React Festival in Syros.

Untitled (black)

This very simple painting was exhibited also at the React Festival in Syros. The limited use of colors (only three: black, silver and red) has, I suppose, a symbolic meaning.

Untitled (blue)

This is another experiment. I wanted to create a similar composition with the Composition (above) with the use of cold colors (blue, white, silver) and newspapers in the place of the yellow rectangles. I finished the painting with an expressionistic use of red.

Untitled (La revolution)

Again here, I find the same preoccupation with words and their meaning (in a much more spontaneous result). This painting must be considered mostly as an experiment.

Cross

This is the older work here (and it's been destroyed). All I have left is this photo. Its size was quite large (app. 1,5 x 1m) and was made with plastic color and newspapers on paper.

Oia

An abstract represenation of the village Oia in Santorini and its famous sunset (Private Collection).
