Friday 25 March 2016 from 6 pm until 9 pm at Gallery 8, 8 Duke Street, St. James, London.
Martix is delighted to present Marianna Veremi’s paintings on a private preview at Gallery 8, 8 Duke Street, St. James, London.
“Odyssey a Personal Journey” is the first solo exhibition of Athens based artist Marianna Veremi. The show consists of eleven paintings and will be curated by Maria Migadi.
Maria Migadi, curator of the show, describes:
Literature and the visual arts are two entirely different forms of expression and never the twain shall meet. Although it is counterproductive to explain art in words one can, nevertheless, attempt an act of creativity when the theme is inspiring. A crisis is a state of affairs out of the ordinary. Anything that upsets the pattern of our routines – be it emotional or social, will inevitably provoke anxiety and hardship. The ancient meaning of, “κρίσις” or crisis, denotes the ability to see and discern complications in life and come to a decision. A crisis is a turning point in the progress of events. Marianna Veremi’s personal response to crisis in society is reflected in a riot of colours that move like an amoeba in the natural world – the development of a bio-plast in time. Her work is in perpetual motion – a shower of colour and tone in an ever-changing series of images that culminate in a post-crisis return to a new state of affairs. The storm in a life previously taken for granted – a world turned upside down. We follow its progress from one work to another at a deliberate, often turbulent, pace to the “last syllable of recorded time”- a time interpreted by vivid pattern and tumultuous colour.
