With countless small and sharp strokes in successive layers, Pentzikis enchantingly weaves a familiar secret landscape with boundless love and patience on his painting surface. Cultivating a peculiar associative narrative, he depicts a unique tale, a Greek painting that is literally theological, devoid of perspective and shading. With disarming simplicity and authenticity he captures the Macedonian landscape and its vegetation composing structures of perception where color and shape transformations play a key part. Adopting a fertile post-impressionist language and a great degree of artistic transcendence he nurtures his art through a renewed relationship with tradition with dynamics that assemble a modern painting consciousness.
