Makroulakis's works show purity and precision in the colours, as well as a peerless manner of using the tones and masses of the composition, which is precisely the case with Vase of Roses, which is a superb example of his work. In giving primary importance to the lighting and particular weight to the role of shadow, the artist succeeds in re-creating the vase of roses with such remarkable skill that he elevates the subject to the status of the immaculate archetype, deliberately seeking to keep a distance from facile personal emotional interpretations.
