Lefki Alexandrou – Emotions January 4, 2011

The Pantheon Gallery invites you to the opening of the solo mixed media exhibition by artist Lefki Alexandrou entitled “Emotions” on Friday 7th of January 2010, 8:00pm.

Few words from the artist:
“Emotions are an important matter, which affect everyone. I express all kinds of emotions through my paintings and sculptures; sadness, happiness, emotions associated with break-ups/ separation and all the stages that follow from a break-up/ separation and the strength and willingness that someone can find after hitting rock bottom. I used mixed media so as to show these different feelings and senses.

Most of my paintings are done using oil paints so that they can express more emotions. My sculptures are made with specific materials so that they can give importance to each emotion. I used materials that are contrasting to each other like glass, steel, raisin, plaster. Glass can express the feeling of devastation, but on the other hand, steel shows strength. By using raisin I wanted to capture the combination of the two materials and how strong they can be and work together. Finally, via plaster I wanted to show the marks that a break-up can leave behind and its effect on the human mind, spirit and body. That’s why I used many techniques and materials because every one of us is different and have different emotions in certain circumstances of our lives”.

Journey through spaces by Birute Kriukelyte-Kazlauskiene

Tags: , ,

Is not gallery proudly presents Birute Kriukelyte-Kazlauskiene’s firts solo exhibition, entitled “Journey through spaces”, on Friday 7 January 2011, at 8pm.

The Lithuanian artist works as an architect and her paintings are always influenced by her everyday life in the working environment and vice verse.

Birute Kriukelyte-Kazlauskiene’s work aims at exploring the emotional amplitude in sectional spaces usually architectural objects, using minimal elements of composition.The exploration of the emotional amplitude in sectional spaces gives the concept a 3 dimensional drawing. The three dimensional experience is analysed as vertical, horizontal, and in an emotional depth. Like in architecture, where the spatial sequence is not defined, the artist’ paintings follow the same pattern, colours and minimal shapes that interlace between each other and creates a vibrant experience of space.

Birute’s work is influenced my Mark Rothko’s paintings and we can see this in the combinations in a palette of hot and cold, bright and dark, shiny and matte, rapturous and melancholy colours.

Birute Kriukelyte-Kazlauskiene has studied at the VGTU (Gediminas’ Technical University of Vilnius), in Lithuania and has received a Bachelor Diploma in Architecture. She now lives and works in Paphos as an architect at Vardas Studio, architectural office.

Tamara’s unique exhibition and workshop of hand-made jewelry in the PLEIADES Art Gallery in LANIA on the 23rd of October 2010.

For the 3rd time in this year, Tamara is displaying her hand-made jewelry collection. Her jewelry shows a surprising variety of forms and colours. The stunning choice shows both amazing elegance and impressive lightness. It is stylish, modern, romantic, young, cheeky, chic and fresh.

Tamara’s creations enhance both day and eveningwear. She favours industrial materials such as nuts. Neat and carefully detailed her jewelry combines natural materials such as semi-precious stones, mother-of-pearl, and beads of ceramic, resins and glass.

Jewelry is still a great topic at Christmas. As a present, it arouses feelings and emotions. Tamara’s jewelry is hand made as one-of-a-kind. Surprisingly these unique pieces are non-expensive and affordable to anyone.

The PLEIADES Art Gallery is located in the centre of LANIA. Lania is an artists’ village on the main way from Limassol to Troodos.

The gallery opens from 10am on.
