PANOS PAPADOPOULOS

[ARTIST IN FOCUS]

Panos Papadopoulos’ body of work consists of two types of paintings dealing with either chaos or emptiness, in a way that is complementary rather than contradictory.
“As time passed, I realized that my ‘minimal’ paintings are not an evolution or continuation of the text paintings but two different expressions of contemporary life. The text paintings are about the power of writing today through social media, emails and programming as well as the psychological confusion and chaos that the contemporary way of life creates. On the other hand, the interior view paintings are about the time we spent- we talk with ourselves. But both of these series are mostly about the praxis of painting.” – Panos Papadopoulos

Panos Papadopouos studied at the School of Fine Arts in Vienna (AT), where is was awarded the prestigious Meisterschulpreis. In 2015, he was invited to the Hooper Projects residency, in Los Angeles.  His work was presented in the 4th Athens Biennale (GR) in 2013 and he has participated in international solo and group shows, often being featured in Vienna, Athens, Paris, Berlin, New York, Leipzig and Cologne.

"Three lines make as many folds and you have a corner. Simply where two walls meet in a room, usually a floor or ceiling thrown in. Elegant, curious, somehow comic but also sad, Panos’ corners come together just so. The vast swathes of emptiness don’t even feel blank, they are the body on which hangs Panos’ slips of wrist. Even when he paints the darkness, the white paper or canvas beneath like cracks of light to make a room. Worlds are summoned here with a few lines."
- Andrew Berardini, 2018
