A stunning chromatic composition that, through its unique use of light the fluidity and the unnaturalistic sculpting of the form becomes intellectual psychological and highly aesthetic at the same time. It shapes and highlights the volumes by giving the elements of this impressive “Attica shore” movement entity and life, achieving a special interpretation of greek nature, a psychographic impression of the landscape. A rich explosive and effusive work that keeps the sensitivity the quality and the tenderness of Maleas without dramatics in the contrast between the cold cyan and the warm umber colors. The warm earthy tones respond to the cool blues of the sea and sky and the pale warm mountains in the background.
