'Tales of Wastelands' - Solo Exhibition of Ioanna Kythreotou
Ioanna Kythreotou 'Tales of Wasteland' Invitation
18th of July, 2018 - The Art Cocoon gallery, presents the work of artist Ioanna Kythreotou in 'Tales of Wastelands', an Exclusive Online Exhibition, showcasing 12 mixed media artworks.
“Tales of Wastelands” is a dedicated exhibition to Ioanna Kythreotou's, art work. An exclusive showcase of small and medium size artworks of her signature technique of mixed media on paper and canvas.
In her multilayered compositions, nature takes control, as trees grow from rubble, mold decorates concrete, and silence reclaims spaces once lived and loved...
The post-apocalyptic essence of her paintings is intensified by the absence of human presence. Her fascination with spatial and time concepts, directs her to create imaginative spaces, using photographs from her archive, where she draws inspiration recreating abandon places, trying to remove the passage of time and decay.
Ioanna creates artworks, which stretch the definition of photo-based painting, and act as an architectural interpretation, where ink lines create structure and drippings of color form debris on abstract layers.
