The exhibition "Abstract Poetry", curated by Iris Kritikos, is organized by the Association of Athenian Pyrgies, almost two years after the group exhibition "Iliaka" which took place in the exhibition area of ​​the Hellenic-French Association with the participation of modern Hellenic artists.
This event, by encouraging artistic dialogue among its members and wishing to contribute organically in the field of Modern Greek Painting, pays a noble tribute to the distinguished Greek painter and important Greek representative of the abstraction Yiannis Spyropoulos.
Distinguished and younger painters who have the Abstraction as their main focus on their plastic and conceptual pursuits, they under the Association of the Athenian Pyrgos at the Tsichritzis Fine Arts Foundation in Kifissia presenting works from their personal collection.
An important honorary presence, however, in the exhibition, is also that of the art fellow of Yiannis Spyropoulos, George Zongolopoulos. The painting work to be exhibited, is characteristic of the abstract painting of the great Greek sculptor, and is a kind contribution of the George Zongolopoulos Foundation.
In a correspondingly interactive way, the exhibition also includes important contemporary Ileian painters who are generally characterized by the abstracting idiom of their writing, in a fruitful conversation and with younger Greek artists of different origins whose painting is also determined by the Abstraction, the eloquent and authoritative existence of a diachronic expression with multifaceted plastic and interpretative expressions.
The proverbial term "Abstract Poetry," chosen as the title of the exhibition, features a poetry class where words are chosen primarily for their sound quality and less for their meaning or interpretation. The works presented in the exhibition, older or newer, have as their starting point and connecting tissue the painting process itself, composing improvised dynamic languages ​​and dense landscapes of the mind.
The exhibition includes:
Yiannis Adamakos Anna Achilleos, Nana Vetta Andreas Gavriliadis Helen Ginosati, Dikea Despotaki Yiannis Efthimiou George Zongolopoulos, Evita Kanellou, Nikos Kranakis Elena Kyrkili, Penny Konstantinou, Barbara Mavrakaki, Stella Meletopoulou, Artemis Papadima, Sophia Petropoulou, Katerina Rimpatsiou, Giorgos Saltaferos, Yiannis Spyropoulos, Lena Tatarida, Aristidis Chrysanthopoulos.
