Untitled (2020)Stelios Karamanolis
Colored pencil and acrylic on raw canvas
Size 85 x 70 cm
A world full of strange figures and things to which we are not fully attuned unfolds before our eyes. A meticulously constructed scenery where every piece of the raw canvas is well thought-out, process and thought inextricably intertwined. Stelios Karamanolis’ (1977, Athens) works are a process of carefully chosen colours and sparingly drawn lines and strokes. The lack of pictorial depth, typical within ceramics, wall paintings and relief sculpture of the antiquity, reinforces and acknowledges the artist’s own ancestry.
Karamanolis’ work is part of the collection of the Onassis Foundation, New York
