Exhibition in Athens 2018
On Thursday April 12th at 8.00 pm Art Zone 42 Gallery proudly presents the solo exhibition of the acclaimed artist Dimitra Griva, titled TWONE.
The theme of the exhibition revolves around the absolute emergence of two individuals both at the physical and mental levels, the one that can only be achieved by defying the modern societal restrictions.
Having being raised up in environment that is -business wise- specializing in cement products, the artist now creates her characters utilizing the same material.
After several years of linen painting, the artist creates her work by mixing colors in cement, which, may seem rigid, yet the artist herself discerns the notion of the plasticity existent from the initial phase of casting the material, up to the final result.
Experimenting now with various sizes and designs, her works “breathe” and have the ability to be preserved both indoors and outdoors.
The art series that will be exhibited at Art Zone 42 Gallery revolves around the concept of love and passion and breaking the boundaries between physical and mental communication.
Obstacles, excitement, projection of emotions and feelings of both torture and liberation are reflected in her original creations, which are projected in simple, schematic forms, sometimes inconspicuous as often two bodies that end up in a head are portrayed, in a color intense framework, one flowing into the other as if there were attracted, just like her artistic characters.
