KATZOURAKIS Michalis (1933) “Holland”, 1991

Holland (1991)

Michalis Katzourakis` enterprise is an externalization of a purely visual language and in no way invokes tangible reality. Through a symphony of lines and planes in a continuum of abstract geometric painting and a constant interaction between color and geometric shape, he seeks the notional content of the creative object. Beginning with a bright palette, he shifted towards more earthy tones with which he builds surfaces, treating the color as a means to express emotion without disrupting the harmony. Hence, his composition becomes a lyrical abstract-expressionistic image that maintains its character even when surrounded by other materials – wood, sheet metal, cardboard – since everything coexists within its indeterminate boundaries.
