Anoyira Mosaic Artwork

Information that has reached the Arts page asks you to prepare for an intriguing experience through one of the most ancient arts known to man.

The setting is Anoyira, a picturesque stone-built village situated midway between Paphos and Limassol, nestling some 500m above sea level looking out over the "shimmering" Mediterranean Sea.

In this idyllic setting you will find the studio of Anoyira Mosaic Artwork, where you will be able to browse over the ever-changing display of individually handcrafted mosaics or commission a piece of mosaic artwork.

Alternatively, if you enjoy the ‘hands-on’ approach, you will able to discover ‘how its done’ by joining the various workshops on offer, including a five day residential course in a superb setting.

Anoyira Mosaic Artwork run by Paul Lilly and Kevin Vinyard. In their studio, a charming old village house, you will discover a stunning display of handcrafted mosaics.

Working in the brilliant light of Cyprus and influenced by the archaeological and natural history of the island, Paul and Kevin are constantly developing new ideas. They produce a wide variety of work, both modern and traditional, which will appeal to all tastes.

Their unique blending of mosaic and natural stone is not to be missed.

For thousands of years, mankind has adorned his home and public buildings with the intricate art of mosaic.

Yes, mosaic is an ancient art form but each new generation is creating fresh designs, using modern materials and colours whilst being influenced by the beautiful work left by artists of the past.

Marina at Gloria’s

Marina Kassianidou

at Gloria Gallery

Until March 4th

Dazzling paintings, often with the use of eggshell (enamel). These works are a visual triumph yet superbly avoid the decorative. Becoming classical, in fact.

Christos Christou on at Apocalypse

This looks most promising.

The artist gained his Master’s of Fine Arts at the Kent Institute of Art and Design and creates, it appears for this exhibition at Apocalypse, both drawings and sculptures of people.

They are placed in unusual places and some have strange markings on them.

Michael Owens,

Hilton

Gallery

One of our best landscape artists now uses his considerable talents to paint Akamas.

Michael uses both oil and water colour to capture forever this beautiful environment. It closes on Sunday. A must.

Figuration everywhere

Andreas Paraskevas

Gallery Morphi, Limassol

Once again figuration is everywhere. There is drama in these paintings. In this exhibition there is considerable feeling and complex situations. It opens on Tuesday and continues until March 29.

Atalanti Voulgari Stephanou

at Orpheus Gallery

Entitled ‘Colours of Dreams’, this exhibition by Atalanti Voulgari Stephanou opens on Wednesday at 7.30 pm.

Returning home to Cyprus Atalanti’s show is based upon dreams and often the vivid, sporadic colours that can often carry us when we are asleep.

Images of sandy beaches, seagulls and even a blue lighthouse in the swell of the surrounding sea.

Her style is expressionist and Atalanti’s choice of colours used in her works can vary, to the point that even when one of her creations looks mostly blue, there are several shades of blue introduced into the one piece of work. The exhibition, at Orpheus in Limassol continues through to March 16.

Stass at Kypriaki

Gonia

Capturing the essence

of our environment

An exhibition of new work (paintings) by Stass has already opened at Kypriaki Gonia, Larnaca and will continue until March 10.

Stass was born in Anafotia. He studied painting at Leeds College of Art and taught at Leeds and Leicester Polytechnics and at the Canterbury College of Art.

He has exhibited his work in Cyprus and abroad, including Greece, England, Denmark, the US, India, Brazil.

He founded the Cyprus College of Art. Excellent influence. His work can be found in various public and private collections in Cyprus and abroad, such as the Tate Gallery in London, Leeds City Art Gallery, Collection of Arts Council of Great Britain and the State Gallery of Contemporary Cypriot Art.

He has also been awarded the State Prize of Art and Letters by the Cyprus Republic.

Is there a better colourist anywhere?

Kikis Lazarides has written:

"Although Stass has lived a great part of his life in the world of art and letters, he is not keen on intellectualism in art. His viewpoint on painting is very simple: he believes that the purpose of this visual art is to create works which are at once complete and self-explanatory, with, when possible having a monumental form.

“He explores the materials and accessories of his art, using them with love and sensitivity. He uses the language of modern art, and not so much for exhibition or eccentricity, but to express his emotions on a visual experience.

“He would rather artists talk about subjects rather than ideas. It is in a somewhat primitive position and an anti-intellectual one, but it suites Stass while also helping him create works which are full of feeling and fantasy.

“His ultimate target is, through his own expression, to converse directly with the soul and cause its sensation."

Stass is a superb painter capturing the essence of our environment in great paintings. He is also a magnificent influence as a teacher. Nothing but the best.

Reflections

Entitled ‘Reflections’, Sevcan’s Cerkez’s exhibition continues at Aspelia, Larnaca until Wednesday (March 5).

Living clay of the island itself. The gallery is filled with figures of human proportions, human in more than just their size, they are figures moulded from the realities of Cyprus.

The artist’s aim is to immortalise the Cypriot, who through misfortunes and hardship has held on to dignity.

Memento Mortem

Angelo Evangelou at Pantheon Gallery

HERE is an excellent artist.

Her work has a deep undercurrent of feeling. An area can evoke a deep sadness. The colour is resonant with passion.

The opening is tomorrow (Saturday) at 7pm continuing until Thursday (March 6 ).
