On Being Blue

Christopher Christou through his first solo exhibition with the Edit Gallery, entitled “On Being Blue,” employs a visual language that is simultaneously forceful and sensitive, inviting viewers to contemplate the singular, multifaceted nature of self.

His work challenges traditional portraiture, beckoning viewers to delve beyond surface impressions, exploring the depths of existence and experience. The exhibition, ‘On Being Blue’ a masterful fusion of materiality and introspection, takes its name from the insightful words of Gass (1976): “Blue is the colour of the mind in borrow of the body; it is the colour consciousness becomes when caressed.”
