Greek island landscape by Hadjikyriakos Ghikas, created with the “tectonic elements” of spirit, thought and logic. The artist’s mastery in drawing and composition reveals to us the rhythms of the lines adding a musicality to the psychographic imprint of his image. It is a labyrinthine world, a poetic combination of shadow, contour, color, with intersections of tectonic relationships, changes of tone, in which light is a wavy trail creating a sense of annihilation. Constant contingencies in the contours and curvatures of the walls, intense juxtaposition of cold and warm colors, changes of tone and light, harmony of design traces all construct a fantastic narrative web, whose rhythm and alternating tensions and silences, fold into the Greek island landscape.
