Thanasis Lalas, An Island in a Sea of Colors
15-31 October 2015
Alpha C.K. Art Gallery is pleased to present the latest solo exhibition of the Greek artist Thanasis Lalas. This is his second solo show in Cyprus. The exhibition entitled An Island in a Sea of Colour presents a series of new paintings, a number of sculptures, and numerous decorative items
Thanasis Lalas has a “holistic” approach to life; and this is what characterises him because he is an artist that is not limited to a single art form. In addition, he is able to make art out of everything he engages with.
As he comments on his work, “Art transforms nothing into something, time into eternity, and man on earth into a bird with wings in heaven… Art has to do with skills and clumsiness that hide our deep desire to respond to the phenomenon of life and death… Art is a daily necessary walk, for no particular reason, in the plains of white, in the land of nothing. Art is the sense of survival, in any circumstances; of the defect of man that is creation.”
