Philippos Theodorides’ new paintings are directly related to rhythmicality. His painting is the result of an intense expressionism, where gesture and composition are guided by instinct and spontaneous creativity.
In the exhibition, The Music That Happens, the chaos of improvisation and the order of urbanity manage to coexist in a counterpoint of their own. Denser and bolder than previous bodies of work, the paintings at the exhibition constitute an expression of maturity and confidence, but without being complacent. Geometries, abstract volumes, wonderfully executed textures and sharp shapes (which could be fragments of street signs) create a condensed sensory continuum, where time, space and matter lose their hierarchy in order to be recomposed by the artist in the rhythm that feels right for him.
