Frixos Papantoniou: Inside Looking Out

Cyprus : Frixos Papantoniou: Inside Looking Out

Gloria Gallery presents an exhibition of paintings by Frixos Papantoniou entitled “Inside Looking Out”. The opening is on Thursday the 29th of March 2018 at 7.30 p.m.

Cyprus-born artist Frixos Papantoniou studied Fine Arts at Kingston University and at the Institute of Education, University of London. Although he made London his home and workplace, he keeps very close contact with his home country where he shows regularly. Based in East London, Papantoniou has exhibited widely throughout the UK, Germany, US, Greece and Cyprus in solo and group shows. His work received awards at Sefton Open, Southport and at Fresh Art, Islington Business Centre London. In 2013 he was one of the three finalists in “Pride in the House” Lauderdale House, Hampstead and in 2016 an exhibition of his work was organised at Europe House, London by the Cyprus High Commission, under the auspices of the High Commissioner in the UK Euripides L. Evriviades. His work is included in a number of collections such as the London Arts Council, the Cultural Services of the ministry of Education, Cyprus, the American College of Greece and numerous private collections.

Speaking about his work the artist states: “As our life is influenced by what is happening around us, the time and space where we happen to find ourselves in, has a strong impact on our emotions and behaviour. Strong feelings such as pride, identification, confusion and sometimes fear give us the energy to bring out the fire inside to create these results. The works showing in this exhibition explore these feelings with a variety of approaches and mediums. The majority of the exhibits are Ceramics. The works were made from basic clay, shaped and fired then metal oxides have been used to create colour, then refired and glazed for the final presentation. This earthy method the artist uses brings us in much closer contact with the environment around us and helps us to understand and appreciate the quality and importance of the space where we live. Also, in the exhibition a number of limited edition of linocuts are included. Images have been created by using found materials to etch the linoleum before it is printed.”

He goes on to also say: “Although the subjects of my work are very personal I do not want to instruct the viewers what to think but to allow them to go into their own personal journey with new experiences”.
The exhibition opens on the 29th March and will remain open until the 17th April 2018.
