Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Utilizing Nature, as the eternal link between humans and earth, as the driving force to create a visual spiritual narrative of positivity where the horizon kisses the waves, the waves reciprocate the kiss, the trees are hugging dancing queens, the boats are enjoying the morning glory, while the glowing rays of the sun are dispersed on all beings on earth. Bringing forward the emotions, sensations, and perceptions of what we see and how affects the mindset in a way that it activates positive shifts to the chemical and neural circuits of the brain. This work embodies the artist's intuitive need, in her own visual language, to capture emotions, space, and this feeling of ethereality where everything is possible in a contemporary context, hoping people can relate to the artwork and in essence be moved and enchanted by the magic of art.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Crete

Based in: Singapore

I grew up in Greece but having lived in many different countries, I have been influenced by many different traditions of art. Through my studies in my BA and MA I had the chance to get familiar with the works of amazing artists from the classical and byzantine era to renaissance and modern times. Many of my works are attune to moments in nature and my childhood experiences in the island of Crete, the beautiful light of the mesmerising sun, the heavenly beaches, the gold of the byzantine iconography. I love painting what emotionally and visually strike my interest from landscapes and shorelines to abstract ideas and feelings. I do not set boundaries on what to paint and allow myself to be free to chance, spontaneity and light. Sometimes, the crushing waves highlight some kind of energy and that conveys a sense of vitality and in a way envelops ,myself and perhaps the viewer into his own world of water and waves.I love that crushing sound, the colours, the pebbles, but at the same time I appreciate and relish the diversity and beauty of this world. Chance and the unexpected has played an important role in my life and that is why I integrate these components in my artistic journey to take anyone to unknown paths, to unexpected surprises.
I have had solo exhibitions in Singapore and many group exhibitions around the world since 2015. I have works currently exhibiting and represented in U concept Gallery in Shanghai , Gallery1819 in Singapore and many collaborations with highly esteemed online galleries in Europe, South East Asia and Japan. One of my works has been a finalist at the International Artist Grand prize competition in A.R.T Taipei 2019 and a lot of my works are in private collections around the world.
