This very rare landscape by Papaloukas is special and characteristic of his Paros period in which he depicts the transformation of the Greek countryside with light and color meshing and coexisting with masterful unparalleled proximity. The beautiful painting is created with the virtues and dictates of both tradition and the international artistic avant-garde at its core attesting thus to Papaloukas’ special relationship with the elements of nature and more particularly with the Greek island landscapes. As a key component of primary painting by drops the power of the spot and the celebration of cold and warm colors which are characteristic of the Paros period, combine to de-spiritualize the whole by removing any sense of gravity, enriching the viewer’s visual perception. The composition is assembled wisely with a sensitive use of color and loving artistry thus implying that they obey the artist’s unending quest to render volumes with immediacy chromatic delicacy of the shapes and brightness of the psychographic color.
