Eleftheria Tseliou Gallery is happy to present Iannis Ganas’ solo show ‘ANTITIMO’. The exhibition opens on Thursday, October 24 and will be on display till the 1st of December 2019.
The work of Iannis Ganas is characterized by innovative techniques. The artist develops these techniques and invents new ones to serve the making of each of the works he intends to realize. The idea of of a bigger scale, handmade, painting that is made in an almost typographic way, creates a sentiment of precision, bleaches out gesture as an aesthetic event and leaves us with a work of great emotional charge. In this body of work, beyond the large landscape painting, one can also see the streets where the artist has lived till now. Here, Iannis Ganas returns to sculpture, this time again, however, the sculptural work becomes the result of a typographic process, similar to that of his painting techniques.
In this show, it becomes evident in the most assertive way that something we discover on the street, can prove to be of major significance.
