About

Born:                        1978

Lives and works:  Larnaca, Cyprus

 

Thekla Papadopoulou's artistic signature is recognized by her particular painting style of layering materials creating visual compositions of colourful abstract art. Her work comes always from a strong conceptual base as she constantly researches and experiments before concluding to proceed to a new art series.

 

These qualities characterize her recent art collection, called 'Fragments', where she composes abstracts forms that seek to outgrow the frame of the painted canvas such as our emotions would do extending to reach the surrounding space and people. She combines pieces of paper, threads and other materials on canvas or wooden boards, forming non-figurative images with vivid and pastel colors. Thekla's motion and energy is visually imprinted on her paintings giving back to the viewer a piece of her identity imprint.

Thekla Papadopoulou has been successfully exhibiting her artworks in solo and group exhibitions in her homeland Cyprus and as far as in New York and London. She has been short-listed in several art contests getting international recognition early on her art career.

Medium: Mixed Media on wooden board and canvas.

Artist's Statement

''My 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. My images are not representational but seek instead to elicit the sensations, memories and wonder associated with our experiences and encounters with raw nature. My abstract works encompass a wide range of mixed media techniques including the use of sand, vitro, acrylic and oil, varnish, collage and found materials. With great dexterity I then synthesizes these disparate elements into a refined chromatic harmony- paintings which are at once ambivalent, monumental and enigmatic.''
