This is a unique and very rare landscape by Papaloukas from his Paros period which captures with unmatched style the transformations of the Greek countryside where light and color intermingle and coexist with artistic proximity. This fine work embodies all the virtues deeply rooted in both the edicts of tradition as well as those of international artistic innovation, thus attesting to Papaloukas’ special relationship with the elements of nature but particularly with the Greek island landscape. The power of the spot, as a basic component of primary painting mass, the plethora of cold and bright colors, characteristic of the Paros period, spiritualize the form by eliminating any sense of gravity and enriching the visual codes of the viewer. The wise composition, the sensitive color and the love with which it is continuously crafted manifest the artist’s quest for form, immediacy, the deepest chromatic subtlety of the designs and the brilliance of his psychographic color in the rendering of the volumes.
