Superb exhibition of Giorgos Rorris, a Greek figurative painter.

Here are some of his scattered thoughts on painting:

“Painting is an art of silence”.

“Shadow in painting is often insubstantial, incorporeal, it has the least material, chromatic presence. Shadow is the extreme borderline preceding silence”.

“Every painter carries within himself the whole history of painting and introduces, in his turn, a certain tradition. His works may not last through time. But if they do, they will become the past of the future. Carrying within you other painters also means that, at the same time, you are struggling to find your own voice”.

I couldn’t agree more…!

Big Thank you to Art Finder once again for promoting my oil paintings online. A timely Christmas day send out!!Art Finder

Great evening had by all at the exhibition opening of ‘Pioneers of Modernism’ at the B & M Theocharakis Foundation for The fine Arts and Music, Athens. Extensive collection of Picasso and Cocteau works on display. A must see!!

Trying a different style… or I should say revisiting a style I toyed with a while back, but failed to devote enough time to develop it properly. Using oils, but with a loose watercolour approach, painting out highlights with white spirit. We’ll see where it goes. ;)….montage

Interesting Graffiti in Athens….

I’m just discovering the importance of hash tags (better late than never) in relation to the promotion of my work. My list here is growing by the minute but thought I should make a note of it before hash taging is the thing of the past 🙂

Great little Fair at the grand Chelsea Town Hall. Some good quality work here. Considering exhibiting this summer… we’ll see.
Met a wonderful artist, Elena Abessinova. Based in Norway. The patience of a saint is obvious when you see the incredible level of detail in her work. www.exclusiveart.no
