036. PAPALOUKAS Spyros (1892-1957)

‘Trees at Mt. Parnassus’

Signed oil on board 70×50 cm

€ 3.500 – 5.000

A most skillful psychographic depiction by Papaloukas in which color becomes emotion. The artist masterfully transforms the emotional charge into expressive values based on the character of his morphoplastic vocabulary. The colorful shadows of the trees vibrate emitting vivid movement and a peculiar magic of exotic connotations. His rare skill in sketching is made obvious by the relationships between volumes introducing a tense tormented rhythm into the otherworldly landscape. He drives deep into the composition uncovering the rhythm of volumes and the dominant imposition of form while avoiding unnecessary details. This quest to reconstruct the world results from an expressionistic mood and strikingly unveils the poetry of matter and the rhythm of form in their pictorial dimension.
