Thomas Tournavitis’ painting exhibition
The art historian Annita Patsouraki mentions: “Thomas Tournavitis’ works are portraits of people bathed in the sunlight and the sense of motion which are infinitely present. The idea of continual change, law of the universe, along with the unity of contradictions in space, reveal a personal colour palette exposed at the Greek sunlight. The work of Thomas Tournavitis is directed by theoretical and technical education inspired by ideals and diachronical moral values.
He is following the steps and signs of faith, in what he taught, he summarises the compositions with honoured facts and faces, social incidents, events and characters in an ecumenical atmosphere . The descriptive austerity of his work revives images of tradition and boldly reflects a new Hellenistic writing… With reflection, self-knowledge and intense internal search, the painter guides his childhood memory-experiences for the regeneration and creation of a new school.”
Thomas Tournavitis was born in 1981 in Athens, Greece. He studied at the atelier of sculptor Nikos Stefos (1997-1999). He graduated in 2005 from the University of Fine Arts in Derby (UK) with a BA in Fine Arts (P) and continued his postgraduate studies in Berlin, Germany (2006-2007). He worked as a former Lecturer at the Department of Photography D. IEK Volos and as an Art teacher in public and private Primary Schools in the city of Volos, Greece (2008-2010).
Since 2008 has enjoyed a successful artistic career in which he been the subject of 30 international solo exhibitions. He has featured in over 100 group shows and major public art projects worldwide. His works adorn private and public collections in New York, Miami, Paris, Montpellier, Athens, Zagreb, Bratislava, Nicosia, Sarajevo and more. Until now, he lives and works in his Atelier in Piraeus, Greece.

Anna Lascari’s solo exhibition
Anna Lascari’s solo exhibition “Extreme singularities” opens at a.antonopoulou.art on Wednesday October 24th, 2018.
The exhibition presents a series of works whose materiality render a gestural setting that raises tension between a manifold of images and movement, sculpture and sound, painterly winks and fragile fragments of impressions. Many of the varying materials have been recovered from the artist’s studio. Nothing is abandoned; values are redeemed through the devised ways by which these unfold themselves and their relationship to each other. Strips of PVC transform like doorways that lead to a further layering of knotty conditions where the individual and collective traverse space, as the title of the exhibition suggests; where the parts coalesce into an altered belt of animation when they otherwise seemingly draw apart from the whole, from the full perception of the viewer and from between the tremors that hold them together.
The precarious “bases” of these pieces whose (im)balances are never detrimental enough to cave-in, in effect, hold resilience. Their emphasized materiality seems to steadily matter and to carry on; and their autonomy escapes the authority of representation. Part of the contact between the work and the viewer is in the intimate relationship of materials between them, with their surroundings, and in the viewer’s own exercise of observation and reflection.
