“Epifanta” Maria Vlandi 08/03/2012 – 21/04/2012

On Thursday, March 8 at 8.00 in the evening Maria Demetriades opens the exhibition of the latest work of Maria Vlandi.

The artist presents a series of large-scale clay sculptures. Almost all works are two metres high and rise vertically in space to form an environment. Their black, ochre and white surfaces carry shapes, lines and script, sometimes faint and sometimes pronounced.

With this body of work under the general title “Epifanta”, Maria Vlandi embarks on a quest along which she moulds, develops, discovers and devises the unique quality of a plastic art “in the making” which eventually culminates into a monolithic formation. Although abstract in nature, this formation still point the viewer to recognisable, familiar worlds.

Maria Vlandi studied painting at the Fine Arts Academy in Rome and ceramics at the Athens School of Fine Arts. She has presented her work in five solo exhibitions. She has received the first award in five national competitions in Athens, and silver medals in the international competitions of Faenza, Italy and Gualdo Tadino, Italy. One of her works is installed at the metro station of Ano Patissia in Athens. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Greece and abroad.

Duration of the exhibition: 8 March – 21 April 2012

Opening hours: Tuesday – Friday: 12.00 – 21.00
Saturday: 11:00 – 16:00
