Eleftheria Tseliou Gallery is happy to present Panagiotis Koulouras’ second solo show with the gallery, under the title ‘Notes for the Kore’. The show opens on Thursday, February 7 and will be on display till the 9th of March 2019.
Panagiotis Koulouras in this show paints weeds, and this way creates a world of calmness, where value derives from what is little. The simplicity that comes with the use of watercolor, along with his impressive craftsmanship, direct our gaze towards a not so obvious space, which is defined by the qualities we choose to see.
As Koulouras mentions in his text for this exhibition: ‘Personally, I felt fulfillment in the view of a weed that can grow anywhere, in the most difficult conditions, in the view of nothing, which you either pass by or you choose to see. That is exactly why I have nothing to say, except that I remember a scene in a movie, where a warrior, right before the battle, stands in front of a cherry tree and tells his opponent that he could spend his life looking at its cherry blossom without ever feeling that he is wasting a single moment.’
