Demosthenes Kolokasides at Kypriaki Gonia
By Glyn Hughes

OPENING tonight, continuing until July 7.
Demosthenes Kolokasides show at Kypriaki Gonia, Larnaca, opens tonight and continues until July 7.
He was born in Athens where he lived during his childhood, then returned with his family to Cyprus.
After his graduation from Lyceum, he continued his studies in Switzerland and then in England, where he graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts of Bristol and did postgraduate studies in typography.
Dr Nadia Anaxagorou comments on his work:
"His creations constitute, at the same time, an open invitation in a fascinating but mainly subversive travel with Alice in Wonderland where the rules of logic are abolished, there, where dream-like associations take shape – often like a heart – in the ductile material of latex, which like a colourful chewing gum of the childhood, inscribes in its tender and flexible texture, memories of innocence, hearty love and warmth, springing from the bottomless depths of existence.
In a totally liberating psychoanalytic dive out of tesserae, shells, fossils and pebbles, jewels genuine and false, half precious gems and pearls, little toys and small articles, ribbons and feathers, that all together take you off in his refreshing light blue ether baptising you in the purgatory blue and merciful coral of the bottom of the sea."
During the exhibition period his work can be seen by visiting the gallery’s web page (www.gallerykypriakigonia.com.cy).
The exhibition will be opened tonight by the Minister of Agriculture, National Resources and Environment, Photis Photiou.

Other Events

LAST day for viewing Art Event 2007. 
Art from the art studios of Nicholas Panayi which can be seen at the Melina Mercouri hall until  tonight June  22, 10am–12pm and 5pm-8pm.
Last day of Christos Eliades’ exhibition at Apocalypse Gallery.
Richly-coloured paintings with highly-impressive merging of abstraction and figuration. They appear Byzantine, but I hear the artist has travelled widely and the beautiful density is also from his observation of other cultures.
Sotiris Chrysses Demetriades’s impressive retrospective exhibition (A 30-Years Path in Painting) at Kyklos Gallery, Paphos, to celebrate the 30 years of his professional career in Cyprus closes on June 30. Not to be missed

Young
artistsTHE art teacher at Nicosia’s Falcon School is Kate Adlington.
As we said last week, she and her pupils have the right to be proud of the work they have been doing, as evidenced by the end-of-the-year Art & Design  Course exhibition.
See last week’s written praise.
This week enjoy some of the imagery.      

Welcome to the World of Meissen

Yes, there is a lot on, but do not miss the “Meissen, European First Porcelain" at the Leventis Museum, Hippocrates Street,  Nicosia. 
It is, without a doubt, the most magnificent exhibition in town, organised within the framework of the EU-Presidency. 
Last week, the German Ambassador, Dr Rolf Kaiser and Dr Brigitte Kaiser-Derenthal, invited members of the Art Group with Fotini Papadopoulou as a guest  of honour  to enjoy a guided tour of the exhibition.
The whole area was ablaze with beauty.

Supernova –
Constellations

THE Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre, associated with the Pierides Foundation, the Laiki Group Cultural Centre, and The British Council are responsible for Supernova- Constellations.
This blockbuster says it examines how new generations of artists from Cyprus, Greece and the UK have been inspired to re-interpret and re-imagine geometric abstraction, which was so closely associated with the evolution of Modernism in the 20th century. It goes on for over a month.  Wait for full report next week.
