Painting: Oil on Canvas.
This pair of paintings was inspired during a windy winter walk by the sea, which seemed totally rough and inaccessible. There was a sense of power and freshness in the waves that enchanted me; Ever fluctuating and impermanent. I loved the challenge of trying to evoke this sense of freshness and movement while painting. ‘Αφρός’ is the word for foam in Greek. In its white colour, emerging ever fresh and anew, it evokes the sensation of cleansing –in a way only a wave can bring forth, turning everything upside-down and out of idleness, in its unstoppable momentum.
"The artworks of Zenia Dimitrakopoulou activate our ability to see and to interpret. Her paintings, based on a purely lyrical sense, reveal an unusual sensibility. The softness of the color schemes and the way she uses them, show us important traits of her personality and her interest in expressing her emotions." José Roberto Moreira, 2016
