ATHINA IOANNOU

[ARTIST IN FOCUS]

Spread on the walls, pinned, hung or laid on paper, Athina Ioannou’s floating compositions play with light, transparency, rythm and movement. She mainly uses textile: soaked in linseed oil, the fabric reveals the intensity of its colors and becomes a pure expression of painting. Her space-sensitive and minimal practice confronts the viewer with interventions that seem to materialize directly from their surroundings.

Athina Iannou studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, as well as the Art Academy of Düsseldorf. She has participated in several individual and collective exhibitions through Europe, her work is presented in several institutions such as the Insel Hombroich Foundation, Neuss (DE), The Benaki Museum of Islamic Art, Athens (GR), Le Dommaine Pommery, Reims (FR), and the Museumcultuur Strombeek/Gent (BE) among others.

"Athina Ioannou enables light to permeate material, the medium of her work. The oils and dyes she uses to immerse her fabrics in, as well the touch of her fingers on paper encapsulate the traces of both the medium and the gestures that constitute them. Rather than claiming the historicity of an age-old art, Athina Ioannou – and with her, the viewer – experiences the mythical moment of an unpredictable, intense emotion."
- Denys Zacharopoulos, 2019
