Athena Anastasiou

10:00 am - 6:00 pm

London and Cyprus-based Athena Anastasiou’s first solo exhibition in the US will feature new large-scale oil paintings that push and expand the boundaries of the traditional genre.Anastasiou creates elaborate compositions that blend realism, abstraction, traditional oil painting techniques, and textile weaving. Textile threads become organic parts of the canvas and often explode from the usual rectangular picture frame into multidimensional mixed-media installations.
Thematically, her works address deep questions of Earth’s chances for regeneration and its dwindling resources and express a childlike wonder at the beauty and complexity of this world.
Nature and children play an important role in Anastasiou’s oeuvre. The artist often uses overlayed images from children’s books to emphasize storytelling, and what she calls the evolutionary timeline between mother and child in regard to the survival of our planet.
The subject of mythology is another important element of Anastasiou’s works. Her paintings are mystical and otherworldly, always portraying a feeling of magic and a sense of nature being alive and nurturing humans despite all their shortcomings.
