More About Christina Moschou
What inspires you?
My work is heavily inspired by my Greek origins, the Mediterranean imagery, my architecture studies and western european influences. The paintings carry the past and are born from the present, blurring the spatio-temporal boundaries between the ancient and the modern, the real and the imaginay.
Describe your creative process.
I write “painted” stories; with minimal aesthetics and a geometric abstraction that attempt to visually convey and emotion or an atmosphere. My work consists of bidemnsional paintings with a sculptural quality. Bas relief elements, different layers and material, add depth and spatiality to the narrative scenes represented. A trip to familiar, yet mysterious cityscapes and landscapes, where the fragments of human body are represented as the central protagonists of the narrative scenes.
Who are some artists that have influenced your work?
René Magritte, Giorgio de Chirico, Fernand Leger, Jean Cocteau, Kostas Tsoklis, Yiannis Moralis, Yiannis Gaitis, Juan Miro, Jean Dubuffet
Where do you go for inspiration?
I travel a lot, I visit at leats once a week an exhibition in a museums , art galleries or art fairs, I read a lot about the work of other artists whose work I like and I take time to process.
