Constantinos Yiannikouris

Cyprus : Constantinos Yiannikouris

As from Wednesday 14 December, Morfi gallery in Limassol presents an art exhibition of Constantinos Yiannikouris.

Yiannikouris is one of the most acclaimed Cypriot artists who lives and works in France. He studied at the School of Fine Arts (Ecole des Beux–Arts) in Paris. Besides painting, Yiannikouris also deals with tapisserie, mosaic and fresco.

His works can be found in various public and private collections such as the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, at the FONDS REGIONAL D’ART CONTEMPORAIN as well as in collections in Japan, Russia, England, America, Australia, Greece, Netherlands, Germany, Cyprus.

Glyn Hughes writes about Yiannikouris: “His work is buoyant and lyrical. Colours are fresh and limpid and even a brush mark can denote form, an edge to a form, a suggestion of many things. The flecks of paint and mottled surfaces are floating over the canvas as if surrounding the images in their own mystery, where a fine, sensitive, nervous line holds a face in antiquity. A band of blue gives a pictorial weight and also is the evening sky. Excellent works.

His huge canvas bounces with glory and he succeeds in using so many pigments and textures without losing any tension at all. And yet the tension is deliciously counterbalanced by a relaxed, floating feeling as if you’re caught amongst the sun’s rays in a beautiful garden where the windows of a greenhouse add diamonds to the foliage. He uses the light seen through shutters to travel in unison across his canvas. Figurative shapes do appear now and again, but they are not essential. Perhaps they are there to urge us to join the halcyon splendour. But it is the magic of chance and the physical impression which gives these works their sensual beauty. When the colour is forced into a small space, the effect is dazzling and when spread over the largest canvases it is as if butterflies have been freed.”

The exhibition shall remain open until 10 January 2017
