Be There! Zoumboulakis Galleries presents “Substratum”: Dimitris Efeoglou & Despina Flessa

Thursday, September 22, 2016 - The artists Dimitris Efeoglou and Despina Flessa join up for a show featuring paintings and sculpture, opening tonight.  The exhibition will be on display from September 22 to October 15, 2016. Zoumboulakis Galleries, while actively attempting to map the contemporary Greek art within the past few years, is introducing the work of young artists. Recognizing its historical mark, the gallery chooses to wander along with artists on their first steps into the art world, in order to accompany them throughout their careers. The “Substratum” exhibition introduces to you the work of Dimitris Efeoglou and Despina Flessa. The show is aiming to bring forth the common ground of the two artist’s method by going through their contradictions. The concept of transformation is central to both artist’s process; they both wish to swift the understanding of material bodies and things. Their creations are studies on the limits/boundaries of material properties, specifically, the properties of paper and graphite. The form of Dimitris Efeoglou’s work is defined by its own repetitive rhythm. The deconstruction of the painted surface, made apparent by the punch holes he introduces on it, suggests to the beholder the possibility to walk through the stages of the work’s production process. The drawing gestures of Despina Flessa creates a context of spatial and mental experiments. Representation; texture; reflection; monochrome paper surfaces in space; the shapes and parts of the graphite sculptures; everything is part and fragment of the dense engraving gesture that insulates the surface within it.
