KARAVOUZIS Sarantis (1938-2011) “Head of a Statue in a Mask”, 1994

Karavouzis` painting is figurative, overflowing with memories of ancient Greece, marble fragments, pottery, antefixes, statuary, as well as everyday objects rendered with the magic and poetry encountered in metaphysical painting. The transcendental light diffused on the objects, the feeling of solitude flooding the landscapes, the absence of all movement and action from his compositions, as the overwhelming sense of tranquility conveyed to the viewer, are elements that give the space in his paintings spirituality and take them into the realm of the unreal.
