Thekla Papadopoulou’s encounters with raw nature

I’m Thekla Papadopoulou, visual artist with background studies in Italy, Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino. I now live and work in Larnaca, Cyprus however I exhibit my work all around the world, London, Dubai, Athens, California, New York.  In my work I use motifs in the landscape and landscape as starting points for highly personal dialogues with the natural world. My work is characterized by richly textured surfaces which evoke the dynamics of the unfettered motion of the sea and the brooding power and mystery of the landscape.29302612718471.5626c2aa4336e
 These transitory evocative images are not representational but seek however to elicit the sensations, memories and wonder associated with our experiences and encounters with raw nature. My abstract works encompass a wide range of mixed media techniques including the use of sand, vitro, acrylic, varnish, paper and found objects. I then try to synthesize these disparate elements into a refined chromatic  harmonic composition to create paintings that are ambivalent, monumental and enigmatic. d6900d37092449.57342cd4a86b3 b6600e37631639.5746c80f3d4f5 693d137546301.560ad4ad67614 066a1015595211.562945aba6f1d 21b9b137092449.57342cd4a8dfc 1a9cfc14828773.5628990b68926f7d70114828773.562897f05d6eb
