On the 21st of June at The Cyprus House in New York, three Cypriot artists will present their new creative art work. Ioanna Kythreotou, Thekla Parapodopoulou and Elena Tsigadou will take part in the exhibition within the residency program at the Consulate of Cyprus. The three artists are invited by the curator of the exhibition, Marina Christodoulidou.
For the exhibition, Elena’s work is characterized by a subtle observation that seeks to provoke the senses, memories and miracles associated with our experiences and encounters. Tsigaridou has filtered her experiences in a personal and modern visual language and has revealed a personal narrative through the still life, with thistle as a vanitas symbol.
The title of the exhibition is reflected as the three artists act as both senders and recipients. Thekla use motifs in the landscape as starting points for highly personal dialogues with the natural world. Her work is characterised by richly textured surfaces which evoke the dynamics of the unfettered motion of the sea and the brooding power and mystery of the landscape. And finally, Ioanna Kythreotou is inspired by the element of remains, made from archival material and created fictional landscapes. Ioanna works in layers while using materials like ink, acrylic, watercolour, oil paint and more.
