Nicholas Ladomatos at Gloria Gallery
Here is a brilliant debut
Nicholas is the son of Andreas Ladomatos who was born in 1940 and of course is still painting. Andreas, as you will all know, is the artist whose brilliant "Open" Windows are so evocative of our difficult times.
So are his paintings of Cyprus streets and his "Stones and Water" series of stones, plants and water which reflect our environment, all in all making him a hard act to follow by anyone.
And now his son.
Nicholas, born 1971 has this magnificent exhibition at Gloria’s.
Nicholas is exhibiting a fresh slant on abstraction. Although an occasional bird (flying) crops up in a painting now and again these superbly balanced abstracts are mostly devoid of recognisable imagery. The image IS the total painting.
And how superb they are. Colour is used with considerable confidence. Often vivid and pure. Laminas are varied in texture. Reliefs are abounding. Tactile surfaces swagger over the canvases with melodic ease. Here and there a crumpled look is a mask for what is actually a flat surface. Lengths of string are placed with severe calmness. Silvered paper has been bashed, pushed and pulled but finally finds its rest at peace with its surroundings. Yet the total "look" is dynamic. Cyprus art continues superbly.

Feryal Sukan
The next solo exhibition at Diachroniki Ledra after the highly imaginative Aich Thema last month is by Feryal Sujan which will continue until February 27.
"Ferya is a natural, sincere artist whose passion for art and life is portrayed in a poignant and direct manner. In her current theme she draws the viewer into the deeper world of the feminine psyche, with flowing female forms, in alluring muted tones of colour and texture.
Her sad and tormented women, rendered in a subtle and at times emotionally provocative manner, create feelings of empathy, despair, and a resolve to face adversity with courage and determination."


From overseas

Theatre director Heinz-Uwe Haus has written a book which is arriving in Cyprus shortly. The book cover reads:
"A clear and concise handbook to the key connections between dramaturgical exercises and performance studies. Haus looks at the way the concept of performance has been engaged across a number of disciplines. Seven chapters with examples, reflections and source material provide a lively, easily accessible overview of the full range of introduction to performance for students at all levels in performance studies, theatre training and performing arts."

Trigona Gallery ‘anti- thesis’

Trigona Gallery. Athens sends in information on ‘anti+thesis’ – a group exhibition curated by Vassilis Karakatsaris
The exhibition attempts to answer the question: What should be challenged about the categories ’landscape’, ‘ human’ and ‘occasion’?
Fifteen artists from Europe, participants of the Trigona Gallery of Athens exhibition come to chart a new terrain. How are we defined by our environment , location and geographical boundaries? How do we experience ourselves within an understanding of these concepts. ? How do we experience others? As the problems of globalization and identity politics recapitulate themselves in our current moment, subjectivity takes on a special dimension. Our world is defined by our borders, our buildings, and our expanding horizon line, while we are asked to locate ourselves within it.
