About the exhibition
What is interesting about Adamakos' work these days is not the narration as such, the manner in which he responds to the external world and to human nature, from which all particular forms of work arise. Naturally, one does not look for neo-expressionist elements in his work, but any expressionist painting elicits an almost physical reaction in the viewer. His works express emotional experiences which are rendered in non-realistic colours, with yellows and reds taken from fierce human passion. When one actually feels the physical reaction, this theory is confirmed.
Despite all the subtle alterations in the style of his painting, the images in Adamakos' works are capable of forcing memory to broaden the field of meaning, without obviously distorting the normal shape of the natural landscape. And this is artistic mastery. The perception of place has a psychological dimension as it is closely tied to every viewer's changing moods and that is why it is not a specific, objective technique. The artist adopts traditional forms and tries to use these to convey an objective expression of an inner affair and in this way to give it true existence.
