Yiannis Adamakis - Nocturnes

Zoumboulakis Galleries present the new solo exhibition of Yiannis Adamakis, “Nocturnes”, on Thursday, 14 February 2019 at 20.00.  The latest, highly personal series of works by Yiannis Adamakis describes a world on the edge. “Nocturnes”, because they show night-time subjects and places; “Nocturnes” also because of their connection to the world of dreams—an imaginary, subconscious world—and the place where hidden thoughts and desires, frustrations and expectations manifest themselves. The artist invites viewers to retrieve their own innermost thoughts, to seek out their own parallel stories as they wander around the world of the works. As Adamakis himself writes about this series of works:  "The night, the music, the gazes, the scent of a presence. The low lights that dazzle us sometimes. These are my images. I've experienced them; I've smelt them; I've touched them. Sometimes I narrate painterly or anecdotal events, in obsessive detail. At other times I just hint. Sometimes I expose myself, sometimes I deceive. It is not my intention to tell a specific story. Indeed, that would be naïvely personal. I stop at some dark hints. Ultimately, I prefer to let viewers live their own story through my works; to listen to their own reality". The exhibition features twenty acrylics on canvas. Transl.
