Panos Papadopoulos
Almost Empty
May 27th - July 5th, 2016

The general source of Panos Papadopoulos paintings is the observation of the daily life. Subtle, measured, ordinary things are the starting points for his canvases. The end point however, reveals a largess of feeling. Feeling that is expressed either from a settle sense of humor or through his painterly practices or else from the way he depicts mundane gestures and found objects. His painting practice resembles a musical combination composed of both high notes (excessive lines, harsh brushstrokes) and lower notes, even silent ones (expressed with transparent details and empty spaces). Moreover, in this series of work Papadopoulos portrays the reality of uneventful private spaces. Through this subject matter, the artist explored the relationship of composition, colour, gesture and materiality.
