Artist Gallery Tour
The Municipality of Ayia Napa have announced an art exhibition to be held at the Thalassa museum by by artist Andreas Ephesopoulos entitled AMATHUS - OLD LIMASSOL.
The exhibition will be open from 27 August until 14 September and includes 27 paintings created by the artist between 1992 and 2020. Using oil on canvas, the works celebrate the artists emotions and feelings about the ancient city kingdom of Amathus,, whose ruins lay on the outskirts of Limassol city.
The exhibition has been touring cities of Cyprus and at last comes to Ayia Napa to show the local Cypriot audience, as well as foreign visitors a glimpse of this historical wonder.
The artist himself mentions in his book entitled ′′ Amathus - Old Limassol ′′:
′′ In my paintings, however, you will not see my dreams and associations but a clear representation of the source of information and inspiration. I try, if ever possible, to paint the spinning air, the light that illuminates, the turbulent land and the damages that, all at once, cause endlessly. Damages on stones often create the most unexpected and complicated formations on the form and surface. Even random assemblies resulting from all kinds of shifts are magical. The wild vegetation and the drastic and dramatic encounter of all elements with the sky, the clouds and the troubled sea complement repeated theatrical performances. All of this, I did everything I could to give it live, so that they could perhaps, trigger and motivation for each viewer to make their own connotations and myths."
