Philippos Theodorides

The City Becomes The Island

Philippos Theodorides’ paintings aren’t made to be read, but rather responded to, enigmatic triggers for a spontaneous upwelling of pure emotion.

In the exhibition ‘The City Becomes the Island’, sound continues to guide Theodorides’ brushstrokes, their tempo and intensity, as well as the process of bringing together various elements unifying them in harmony. The hustle and bustle of everyday life in the city is converted into the serenity and calmness of the island, resulting in artworks that exude purity and calmness but simultaneously are bold and whimsical.
