Initiates (2011) by Maria FilopoulouThe Sotiris Felios Collection
Maria Filopoulou composes a multifaceted narrative, which creates a mythical atmosphere with clear realistic references, through a dreamscape populated by ethereal creatures.
The painting sets the image of a mystical ritual in a magical Greek place.
Aphrodite of Knidos (2015) by Emmanouil BitsakisThe Sotiris Felios Collection
Emmanouil Bitsakis creates microscopic, conceptually transcendent images, and enjoys visual wanderings with allegorical scenes and ambiguous meanings. Putting together thematically impossible beings, he moves between thousands of years of history, proposing his own meanings.
Οedipus and Antigone
Takis’ sculpture is one of the oldest and most widely known wrought iron sculptures. The artist pairs up “Oedipus and Antigone” in a purely minimalist way, clearly influenced by Giacometti, whom he met in Europe in the 1950s.
Fishing (2007) by Achilleas PapacostasThe Sotiris Felios Collection
Achilleas Papacostas creates figures that emerge from an undefined space, almost fluid and transparent, that makes them glow like fireflies. They lack volume, appearing one-dimensional in an unfamiliar space, cut off from the sense of time of our world and gazing into eternity.
Shades of Gold (2010) by Kalliopi AsargiotakiThe Sotiris Felios Collection
Shades of Gold
Kalliopi Asargiotaki describes, in a realistic, figurative style, a female face with the typical expression of an innocent girl, wandering dreamily between the real and the imaginary world.
After a While (2012) by Theofilos KatsipanosThe Sotiris Felios Collection
After a While
Theofilos Katsipanos conveys a strong metaphysical dimension through his artworks, depicting the human form, both intensely realistic and simultaneously distorted in proportion. Reality and the dream world seem to be in coexistence.
Androniki (2013) by Giorgos RorrisThe Sotiris Felios Collection
Giorgos Rorris paints on the spot and never from memory or photographs, trusting in the end the self-reliant knowledge of the gaze, hence his paintings are born from it.
