Two new art exhibitions arrive in Nicosia this week. The first at the Alpha CK Art Gallery is Nikolas Antoniou’s exhibition titled Seasons Change, which runs Wednesday through October 16.
Nikolas enters the fall season with a new series of paintings and with bold design gestures placing the human form at the center of a state of transition, where his psyche is evident. In Nikolas’ attempt to emotionally sketch the human form, he decides on his disembodiment.
Although this new body of work is titled Seasons Change, Nikolas’ paintings do not stem from a specific idea or theme. He consciously avoids focusing on absolute questions or specific answers and instead creates new paintings that raise unfamiliar questions and invite the viewer into an imaginary dialogue.
It also opens its doors this week and in a seasonal atmosphere, the Andreas Karousios exhibition presented at the Gloria Gallery from Thursday. Entitled Pulse-Four Seasons, the exhibition is Andreas’s fourth solo showcase.
The exhibition will present more than 70 works measuring 35x50cm with themes inspired by nature, the pulse of life and the four seasons. The works incorporate bright, vibrant colors and alternate with soft pastel tones.
The pieces develop through emotions, memories and psychological moods. Speaking of his work, Andreas says, âPainting with colored pencils and inks on pressed paper on wood. Don’t like the word in a hurry? Stuck thenâ¦ so that they never separate. The placement of the works in the space creates adjacent landscape paintings. The importance of memory recall is that it is likely to be an instant product. Hosted until the end of the month – October 27 – viewers can explore the artist’s four seasons and interior and exterior landscapes and life’s journeys.
