George Hadjimichalis / Two Works

 

Eleftheria Tseliou Gallery is happy to present George Hadjimichalis' solo show 'Two Works' on view ten months before his large retrospective exhibition, George Hadjimichalis: Works from 1966 to 2019, at Benaki Museum.

The exhibition opens on Wednesday, the 2nd of November, 2022, and will be on display till the 7th of January, 2023.

 

The first work is titled An Exhibition of Portraits Dedicated to Antonello da Messina's Painting "Saint Jerome in his Study" (c. 1472), 2015-19/2022.

 

George Hadjimichalis began to develop the idea of painting portraits dedicated to Antonello de Messina at the end of 2015 and continued with this idea till 2019, when he stopped to engage exclusively in the organising of the Benaki Museum exhibition, which was to open in September 2020. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the museum's exhibition was postponed for 2023, giving enough time to complete the work, which comprises 44 portraits that are exhibited in their own space.

 

The second work, titled On Earth, 2022, consists of 16 small paintings arranged in a wall display case.
