Installation, wallpainting (charcoal, acrylic, glitter)

Art Gallery of Municipality of Thessaloniki

 

It is an autobiographical narration, about childhood, passing through puberty through the first adult years, reaching the present, the moment of creation of this certain picture (red figure). It’s also a reference to the possible continuity of the painter’s artistic research, until the remote future and finally the inevitable biological end.

The painting evolves on three walls (in a Π geometry) of a total length of 21 meters. There is also a fourth wall, made of plexiglas which limits the area within the walls. This wall, allows the spectator to “intrude” into the limited area just like a peeping Tom, through a small hole surrounded by light (neon).
