Erotica
continues

Dinos Michaelides and Stelios Votsis are at Morphi Gallery.
Dinos makes sweet little figurines in realistic poses but none (I think) ever completely in the buff.
Stelios, the master of lines (note the discreet phallic border patterning) is always on the verge of saying no to fully-frontal close ups.
Both are rather shy but at least the sculptures and drawings can be put up on the wall in the dining room and will not upset the kiddies.
Eros? 


Masala must return

MASALA is an exhibition by three Cypriot-based artists whose work has been profoundly influenced by experiences in India.
 They are Lazaro Hadjisoteriou, Mary-Lynne Stadler and Raymond Wilson.
 This exhibition has closed, unfortunately  - it was on for only one and a half days - and the work was of a high standard.
At the exhibition, a group of Bangladeshi students played instruments as a musical background to the paintings hung on the walls, adding considerable charm to the evening.
We must hear this group again. I hear Lazaro is doing her best to organise a get-together. 

Open Day
in Larnaca
THE Cyprus College of Art has announced the opening of a new art centre in the heart of Larnaca. From September, the centre will offer a range of art and design courses at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Tuition will be in English and full or part time study will be possible.
Through their agreements with several British universities, the Foundation Course will guarantee a place on an art or design-degree course in the UK.
To celebrate the opening of the new centre, the Cyprus College of Art has an Open Day at their new Larnaca building on Friday, June 22, 2007 at 10am until 12 noon, in Mehmet Ali Street, Larnaca.
The College will be taking over the former Municipal Art School, a beautiful Neo-classical building in the heart of the old Town.
It is an amazing space and effectively creates the first Academy of Fine Art in Cyprus. The existing site at Lemba will be kept.

RomanianSociety
in Cyprus
DAPHNE Mavrovouniotis-Trimikliniotis opened the exhibition ‘ Reflections’ by the Romanian artist Rodica Lomnasan, at Opus39, on Monday, June 11.
Report next week.


 Homage to
Diamantis
THE presentation of a limited-edition album of paintings by Adamantios Diamantis, will take place on Monday, June 18, at Opus 39 Gallery at 8pm.
The exhibition will continue until June 22 (tel 22 424 983).
The presentation will be made by Nikitaros Orfanos, a member of the Board of Directors of the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation and will be introduced by Alecos Diamantis, son of the painter.
Kyriacos Lyras will talk about the method of producing these high-quality prints.
The series, which includes four oils and two watercolours, has been published by the family of Alecos Diamantis.
Because Diamantis’s work is hard to find, the family of Alecos Diamantis  decided to produce the album, signed by the son.

Art Aware  11

 


FROM November 2006 to June 2007 artists from all over Cyprus presented their art on the first Sunday of each month under the auspices of the German Cultural Centre, the Goethe-Zentrum, Nicosia, at its premises next to the old Ledra Palace Hotel, Nicosia.
Two well-known German artists, Ina Weber and Tim Trantenroth, joined their colleagues in Cyprus in the first half of June for an intensive exchange of ideas on how living in a divided country influences the creativity of the artist.
They will be represented at the final exhibition with all the participants of Art Aware 11, on Monday, June 11, at 8pm at Famagusta Gate Nicosia.
The exhibition was inaugurated by the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, Dr Rolf Kaiser.
It will be on until June 22.
Also the presentation of  ‘Gestures of Reconciliation’ will take place on Wednesday, June 13 (part one) and Wednesday, June 20 (part two).
At Famagusta Gate, at 8.30pm.
 The artists are:  Angela Evangelou, Ates Kozal, Ayhan Mentes, Carla Abrantes, Daphne Trimikliniotis, Guner Pir, Heidi Trautman, Horst Weierstall, Hourig Torossian, Huseyin Ozinal, Ismet Tatar, Martin Meason,  Osman Keten, Panikos Tembriotis, Sophia Hadjipapa, Vedia Okutan & Ina Weber and Tim Trantenroth.

 

George Pol Georgiou in Athens

TO Spiti Tis Kyprou,  the Cultural Centre of the Cyprus Embassy in Athens, is currently celebrating the 20th anniversary of its establishment, with a major posthumous exhibition of paintings of celebrated artist George Pol Georgiou.
Inaugurated by Dr Eleni Nikita, Director of the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education, this rare exhibition will remain open to the public until the end of June.
During the course of the exhibition, Academician Chrysanthos Christou will be awarded the  Soli Honorary prize of the Ministry of Education and Culture for his outstanding services to art in Cyprus.
Georgiou, like the late Adamantios Diamantis, Christoforos Savva and Telemachos Kanthos has been instrumental in establishing the authenticity of the Cyprus reality by creating what has since been accepted as the Cypriot School.
The Georgiou exhibition in Athens is being held in collaboration with the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education

 

The Falcon School  
TEACHER Kate Adlington has a right to be proud of her students’ end-of -year Art and Design Course exhibition, in which superb work filled the art room.
Perhaps next year this wonderful show can be exhibited in a larger place in the school.
As well as paintings and drawings taking pride of place for exhibition there were also ‘stacks’ of art folders, with extraordinarily interesting and accomplished work that certainly needed more than a glance.
It was obvious that, as well as having natural visual talents, the students had done a great deal of their own research, sometimes paying homage to adult artists, including the best of our own country.
As well as a tribute to Van Gogh, or a paean of praise to Pablo, there were tributes to Christoforos Savva.
Experiments galore.
Some visuals could be slid along to enhance and add extra perspectives.
Texture had a field day, with use of various materials and often an extra dimension in sculptural form demonstrated the complexity of current art forms.
As well as an exceptional use of colour, fine drawing  (it still matters) and bold design, there was a great dealing of feeling in the displays.
Sadness and joy were all there.
Subtly touching, exhilarating and bold energy, were all there.
Adult artists, beware. 

Garth Frost
at Gloria Gallery

GARTH Frost was born in New Zealand in 1948 where his early working life was spent in theatre set design, puppet theatre and shadow theatre.
Garth has been painting professionally since 1995. In Cyprus he has been exhibiting since 2000.
He also created, together with the painter Demetris Michlis, the shadow theatre ‘Bouncing Lemon,’ which continues to be seen in towns and villages throughout Cyprus.
Simplicity of form is the main characteristic of Frost’s paintings, while his colours have a clear transparency.
Within the enlarged simple forms of his paintings, we recognise the marks and scratches of time and nature on shell forms, the fertility compressed within the pomegranate’s skin and the floating weight of cloud forms, all realised with paint in a very complex  and energetic way.
