“Beneath the sky”
Miltos Golemas presents “Beneath the sky”, his second solo exhibition at Zoumboulakis Galleries.
His new work recalls to the senses the textures and colours which have remained in his memory from landscapes experienced in the past. The exhibition includes both large scale and smaller works, oil and mixed media on canvas.
Images of the earth, indissolubly bound up in his own experiences and impressions are imprinted, almost in relief, on the canvases. Using a palette reminiscent of classical paintings, Golemas invites the viewer to wander through familiar landscapes. There is always a sense of a human presence, even when it is visible in the painting.
“The Earth, marked with human traces and charged with memories, is above all itself a living presence. Golemas’ new work is a sudden awakening beyond and above the visual experience. You feel the moisture in the air, you strain to catch the sound of the breeze brushing over the wheat, you smell the aroma of newly-dug earth, wander through those elements which rise up before you, like the scene of a theatrical performance: a moment spanning the before and the after, in which the artist conceives the image ”.
