Stella Kapezanou composes complex, ironic, colourful and often bizarre paintings which draw their inspiration from capitalistic western societies and materialistic lifestyles.
Her work focuses on the complexity of the human subject and human emotions in our modern society and highlights the emotional disconnect we have from the world that we have created and now live in.
In the exhibition ‘Single’s Party’, Stella Kapezanou explores the concept of human affairs. The way that people interact and relate to each other, their relationship with objects as well as the very absence of connection. ‘My subjects don’t quite intersect; they’re just strange people playing in a fake world’. Central to these paintings is a subtle irony and a profound questioning of our place within contemporary society, the strength of our grip on the tangible and, conversely, the force with which the intangible exerts a hold over us.
