A wonderful poetic conception of the Greek landscape with tender light and soft shades in masterful synergy of color and simplification of the form. Shapes are magically created through color. Maleas depicts here what the eyes of the soul can see using minimal realistic elements, intense anti-naturalistic use of color and light, flattening of the painting space and gestural intervention; the resulting fine composition exudes vitality and rhythm that resonates throughout the landscape. Observing the sky with careful attention, one can see movement making you feel that the wind on the canvas is breathing and humming.
