Costas Varotsos, Varotsos
5-22 December November 2018
Alpha C.K. Art Gallery presents for the firt time in Cyprus a solo exhibition by the famed sculptor Costas Varotsos
His seemingly magical ability to transform glass, iron, stones and wood into monumental works that testify to the artist’s struggle with the fragility his materials, transparency and light, to create a linear elegance and dynamic form with a minimalism and refinement that is a testament to his mastery of his art form.
Costas Varotsos was born in Athens in 1955. He studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome and continued his studies in architecture at the ArteScuola di Architettura at the University of Pescara in Italy.
From early on his work crosses the boundaries between painting and sculpture, and demonstrates his interest in transparent materials and in the relationship between the art and the environment. He began to exhibit regularly in leading galleries in Italy and Greece and over his thirty-year career exhibited his work in many solo and group exhibitions throughout the world.
Over career, Varotsos created and installed sculptures for private collections and public spaces and museums in Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain, China, Japan, Egypt, Brazil, the USA, and the UK.
