George Vaviloussakis at his solo exhibition at Elika Gallery, titled 'A truth about a lie', presents a series of works where images and consumer goods are introduced within a new frame of reference and are the subject of further exploration.
The inspiration for this painting unit derives from simple images of everyday life, objects and products filtered through the aesthetic stimuli of the internet. They are rendered here spontaneously with a few clean brush strokes and through a palette of three colors, white, black and a shade of light red.
Part of the creative process is the element of coincidence, the random; the work continues to complete itself, as the still fresh colors create drifts.As excerpts of a flowing reality these images are the everyday environment of a whole generation, composing a common experiential perception. They act as levers of emotion shaking, as through their use and through custom they create individual and collective identities. The works narrate a living story with consistency and uniformity, which raises the doubt of rationality and reality itself.
For Vaviloussakis the lie becomes the expressive effect, namely the reconstruction of the truth, composing a personal world as true as a perfect lie.
