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…!
