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:
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.
