Portraits - Art Exhibition
We are proud to welcome Greek artist Sofia Kyriakou in our shop in SoHo, from June 30 until July 7. The exhibition showcases paintings and portraits from the period 2002-2012.Her work touches on the principles of modernity, overlooking any stylistic classifications in order to present a portrait with numerous variations. At times her work is wild and furious while meeting the limits of simplicity. It is both primitive and futuristic while touching on intangible spirituality.
Sofia Kyriakou (1974) lives and works in Athens, Greece. She studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Athens, and at the Erasmus Faculty of Fine Arts of the Barcelona University. She teaches Art in the department of Applied and Visual Arts in Florina, Greece. Her work was also been exhibited in Amsterdam.
Sofia on her work
"I research my field using composite materials with different techniques and themes,to create art works which reconstruct the existential search with the deeper meaning of the materials themselves. My materials, sometimes real and other times painted, are transformed into pure painting. Real materials, many times, are set next to the paintings, composing the whole with the expressiveness and the functionality of the partial elements. The contours, the color spots and the collage compose the painting material, forming a new reality"
