Michalis Economou, a very special case in the history of modern Greek art in terms of language and morphology but also of the obsession with his unique representation of the landscape in a very characteristic environment which now identifies him. Poetic depictions of his different architectural types, as it appears in this characteristic work here, in the vicinity of water so that his reflections are an integral structural part of his artistic representation. Pale colors and shadows, simple lines, weightless volumes and reflections all embraced by a haze, not at all attractive, give him the feeling of unfamiliarity, the feeling that he belongs to an intermediate space, to a world that floats between dream and reality.
