Sheaves on display
The Elena Kouma exhibition ‘Sheaves’ opens at Argo Gallery, Wednesday, March 11 and
continues until the 28th of the month.
Klitos Ioanides says of her work: “Her solar Sheaves of Wheat and wise use of colour are
imbued with the scent of an inner essence of her soul which is expressed visually through the facets of a transformation of
the psychological ego that moves towards the inner existence of things”
Antonis Danos says further: “In some pictures, seeds of wheat emerge from the soil, toward
the light, energy, fecundation and abundance.
“In others, orgiastic effloresence and fruit bearing occupy the painterly surface, as a
hymn to the miracle of gestation and propagation, thanks to the life-giving energy of the sun, which – in Kouma’s
personal mythology – eventually leads to the sublimation and spiritualisation of the material world.”
A splendid opening
