Zacharioudakis: Artworks, 2004-2006 from 15.09.2007
The exhibitions brings together ink and tempera paintings
on hand made paper (papier màché) front
the 2004-2006 period.
The artist plays with "corridor metaphysics",
with internai and external sites, with lonely women
flgures in closed and at the same time open settings
- veritable models of a personal architecture. He brings
great care to the "procedure" and the "Joy"
resulting in the creation of a work, which makes it
a work ofart.
Through a self-referential art, an art within an art,
the artist rediscovers his post and present. Thus a
sort of small retrospectwe ofthe artist takes place
in every one ofhis work on show.
His work has inspired thefollowing words: "I recognize
Manolis Zacharioudakis' work among many others - despite
thefact that he is not a pointer who repeats himself.
On the contrary, he constantly changes themes, stories,
materials andforms. [Yet his work] shows a common trait:
an ancientpop. What do I mean by this? Manolis Zacharioudakis
is a narrator... He tells stories, epic events, adventures
ofthe body andmind, passions ofthe soul... And he gives
shape to these stories with every means, in a literal
sense: in his hands no material remains poor and inexpressive
and no experiment seems too risky. Ancient because of
his multiple startingpoints. And pop. Totallypop. Absolutely
contemporary and popular because of his multiple expressions
... an artist ofhis Urne, he glides adventurously on
the crest ofthe wave, listens to binary Urne, pits himself
against it, dives under the wave, immerses himself in
the imprint oftime, feeds on the everyday, finds the
eternai pastures in the depths oftime, grazes there
too and emerges holding in his hands the story and the
paintings. " (N. Xidakis, Edeukthirio, no. 72,
