This particularly dazzling work by Papaloukas positions itself between tradition and avant-garde; it all but radiates liveliness. A warm, sweet light acts as catalyst for the colors, highlighting the painting qualities and a sense of purity and contrasts in the tones. Opposing the colorful harmony, the greens acquire dynamism; trapped in rough red contours, they are choking on energy. Light and color knead and uniquely shape the volumes, activating the senses. With the flatness in the depiction and the avoidance of details in the composition the artist steps beyond the naturalistic arrangement of the motifs. With a psychographic rhythm and an advanced skill it gives a warmth and coziness to this eerie landscape.
