The PERITECHNON Karteris Art Gallery presents the first solo exhibition of Giorgos Douatzis, with abstract painting acrylics on canvas.
The curator of the exhibition Hera Papapostolou notes, among other things, in the catalog of the exhibition:
… Giorgos Douatzis is self-taught in painting. His materials are acrylics and his choice is the abstract approach to his subjects. Although he has only been painting for the last three years, he seems to be a connoisseur of colors and their combinations. He works directly on the canvas, without a draft. His painting is distinguished by its abstract tendencies, the expressive power of colors and the expressionistic character of the whole. The strokes, the forms, the color and the texture of the material move the viewer, as much as they express the painter’s feelings and particular inner perspective…
Giorgos Douatzis mentions in his note: “It seems that the need to express myself in many ways led me first to Poetry, then to photography and recently to playing with colors. I don’t pre-plan, I don’t have the final form of the painting in mind, I just let myself go and instinctively pour the colors onto the canvas, hoping to be moved by the end result.”
