Demetris Constantinou, Gloria Gallery

THIS is a superb exhibition by Dimitris Constantinou. As Haris Kambourides, curator of the Museum of Modern Greek Art writes in a new excellent book “Dimitris Constantinou” edited by Voula Kokinou  and Savas Kokkinos for En Tipis writes:
“What deeper messages are offered us today, at the dawn  of the 21st century, by the works and route of a modern sculptor? What is  the relationship of geometry to our experiences and our fate?
What is the specific and also international importance of an artistic deposition  which developed with such success in Greece, Cyprus and the broader  European stage?
The biggest part of Constantinou’s work is geometric art. Shapes like the square and the circle are illusory,  outside the natural form that we come  across every day life. Usually they declare an art that is abstract, cerebral,  laboratory like. It is true that geometry is an old cience born, it is said in ancient Egypt, when the  floods of the Nile destroyed field boundaries, and mathematicians  developed methods with which they could find them after the waters had returned to the river bed.
On  the other hand, geometry  is not just a menal pursuit but also experimental, since it applies to natural space  an  concerns the users, us humans who live in it. At the same time it hides inside of it movement, opposing directions, life itself. While writing these observations I immediately feel that they concern Constantinou’s work His geometric forms contain man, it is not abstraction for the sake of abstraction, form for the sake of form.
The vocabulary: Vision, touch, understanding, feeling and materials”.
There is another period of his work which is different. After the terrible events of 1974 the artist showed in the foyer of the Nicosia Municipal Theatre. They were sculptures of army shirts; crumpled and torn. He an be an artist for  all seasons.
His current exhibition  continues until Friday the 2nd of March which is also the anniversary of the first opening of Gloria Gallery.


Angels, Gallery K

CONTINUING  until the 17th of March the gallery is  packed with art underthe theme Angels.
It has truly taken wing; wonderful, enlightening with an exceptional variety. Good to see that Christina Constantinou Giusti who lives in  Italy and is a daughter of Demetris Constantinou is participating with a couple of beautiful imaginative pieces.
Since  opening its door in Nicosia  in 1999, Gallery k has invited artists to participate in themed group  shows. The theme gives  them  an inspirational idea, and this  year’s - which also celebrates St.  Valentine’s  day is  The Angel. Drawings, paintings, sculpture, ceramics and photography by 30 artists, bringing to the exhibition their own fascinating ideas.
“For mellennia The Angel has been a recurring mage in the visual artsof any civikizations and culture - from the earliest Sumerian images of 4000 BB to the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe. The Symbolism is at  itsmost elaborate in  the Islamic, jewish and Christian  faiths. Supernatural winged deities in human form, they appear in many different roles; as god-like messenger of divine orders, as the personification  of inspiration, ecstasy  and love - sacred or profane. They can be protective guardians, or the les  welcome angels of death.
Today, the concept of The Angel has transmuted  into song lyrics, TV shows, cinema foods and advertising campaigns. Yetdespite all the angel’s aqn embodiment of purity prevails andstill has  the power to evoke awe and wonder.
This exhibition contains something for everyone. A captivating collection of imaginative poetic and powerful images, eloquently demonstrating that The Angel is a true testament to the universal power and fascinating of artistic creation.


Archetypal Landscape
John Warren, Kypriaki Gonia Larnaca
THESE  expert landscapes are beautifullly observed.  There are some abstract ones too which is a leasing development for the subject. The exhibition  continues until the 27th of the month.


Transition

Pantheon Gallery is to host Marlen  Karletidou’s art exhibition  tomorrow Saturday 24th February at 7pm.
The new work by the artist Marlen Karletidou under the title Tansition is one of a mature painter  whose thoughts and problems concerning opportune matters create the imagedirect, with fantasy and unexpected surrealistic elements.
People, butterflies, birds, animals and psychic creatures mix and mingle, pay and  dream in a continuous flow  of  movement.
Theidea of the artwork came out  at the moment of the opening betwween  the two parts in Nicosia,  North-South, at the Ledra Pallace barricade. At the point, which the
