Theodoulos Gregoriou

Diatopos Centre of

Contemporary Art

Androulla Michael has written in the wonderful catalogue:

Cells’ is the title Theodoulos has chosen for his work made for the Louvre, as it exactly defines the heart of the matter which rules his entire work.

The cell, working as a symbol in his mind, crystallises and underlines his work and justifying it calls for a new way of understanding Aristotles’ ‘Physics’ whereby "matter carries in itself the origin of movement and of change but takes shape and builds up as a picture through the mind".

In his "video sculptures" and his "expanded paintings" Theodoulos conjugates diachronic, archetypal forms, such as: spheres, cones, cubes, in various cellular combinations on which projected pictures come to life by slides and video pictures that, by definition, pertain to the world of immateriality which for him is equivalent to the immateriality of the thought. This kind of work finds its achievement in the installations he created for the Biennale of Venice in 1990 (Aperto) and in 1997."

Androulla continues: "The video incorporated into the spheres made of metal or cement, transform the materiality of the sculpture that becomes a hybrid form oscillating between matter and non matter.

“His works make forms and temporalities echo among themselves in his quest for balance while tending to reconcile contraries.

“He also toys with the difference produced among various materials, as in: the cement cubes and the waves of the sea or waves of fire, the cone of cement which emits luminous signals. As a creator, Theodoulos tests the efficiency of his hybrid blends.

His entire work can be viewed as under the sign of transformation, as the passage of one state to another, as the result of magical power that charges the chosen material with a poetical aura." A MUST.

Olga Spanou,

Gloria Gallery

Olga has branched out and as well as some superb paintings and collage has produced a whole series of portraits which are full of visual richness.

There is also a brilliant tribute to poet Montis. Suddenly Olga is our top sculptor.

Olga’s versatility is amazing. Every aspect of her creativity is exceptional. Her main "flow" of artwork is her absolutely superb "pieces- still lives- abstracts," which in this wonderful exhibition are still (to me) taking pride of place. The humble sack – sakoulla - sometimes painted on top, sometimes left ‘naked’ rules the wall covered aesthetics with a very strong and loving and sensitive warmth. Sacking has turned into a form of base pigmental "royalty".

A visual warmth fills the room. Is there anyone better here?

Alexandros Michaelides through to May 31

lexandros Michaelides was born in Oxford in 1983 and was brought up in Cyprus.

In 2001, he attended a foundation course at Camberwell School of Arts and in 1995 went to Middlesex University to study Fine Arts.

In 2007, he spent six months at A.V.U. (Academy of fine Arts) in Prague through the Erasmus exchange programme.

He obtained his B.A. honours degree from Middlesex University in 2008.

Since his graduation he has been living and working in Cyprus, teaching at Intercollege in Larnaca and at the Nicolas Panayi Art Studio.

In 2008, he participated in two Middlesex University exhibitions: the ‘Fine Art 2008’ Degree Show held at the university itself, and one held at the Truman Brewery in London.

In December of the same year, he also participated in ‘A Book for a Lifetime’ an International Group Exhibition organised by The Artspace, and Moufflon Bookshop and Publications Ltd, in cooperation with the Goethe-Zentrum in Nicosia.

In his work, he aims to combine diverse elements and techniques in order to create homogeneous compositions.

To this purpose, he uses geometric architectural shapes, organic forms and strong colours.

He is currently working with mixed media which include paint, ink and pencil, as well as stencils, sprays and airbrushes.

Delightful Olivera

Olivera Smiljkovic is showing delightful work at Apocalypse Gallery. These bowls of flowers and succulent fruits bring joy, beauty and great artistic accomplishment to our art scene.

Art heavyweights are assembling.
