About the exhibition
In Michalis Katzourakis’s «Works in Two and Three Dimensions» there is a dialogue between works in small and large scale, indoor and outdoor environments, paintings and monumental sculptures.
The exhibition has chosen to display pivotal points in the development of the artists’ ideas and his concerns with the figurative and the abstract. His sculptures, dating to the late ’60s, are notable for their dynamic, with full and elliptical geometrical forms, rectangles, squares, circles and lines, as well as for their colour. These works are «imposed upon» and «intervene» in the urban landscape. The minimalist sculptures focus on explorations of the geometrical form and classical analogies; it flows from the artist’s own artistic geometric glossary.
In his recent works, Katzourakis revisits with sensitivity the artistic transposition of the visual stimulus in windows, objects from our everyday environment. The stark geometry of the older works is transformed into an abstract approach to the world.
