Katerina Dramitinou’s exhibition ‘Astrocytes’ opens in Sydney

·

Twenty-five works by Katerina Dramitinou for her exhibition ‘Astrocytes’ are currently on display at The Shop Gallery in Glebe, Sydney until Wednesday, July 3.

Dramitinou is a contemporary Greek painter from Rethymnon, Crete. Her digital art series ‘Astrocytes’ is a digital art series that delves into the intricate connections between the human mind, natural elements and history. Dramitinou focuses on the interplay of colours and forms, creating visually engaging pieces that invite viewers to explore deeper meanings and connections.

The exhibition was officially launched in Sydney on Saturday, June 29 with an opening speech by Professor Vrasidas Karalis from the University of Sydney.

In his speech, Professor Karalis said Dramitinou’s works “imprison our mental ability to look beyond what is depicted in the picture.”

“Astrocytes offer to us the grace that is missing from our own existence, as they transform the tragic suffering of her mind into a profound call for creativity and spiritual resistance,” he added.

Dramitinou’s work primarily focuses on the interplay between nature and human perception.  Her digital works often explore themes of nature and human perception, much like her traditional paintings.

Her work has been exhibited widely in Greece, France, Austria, Germany, the United States, Italy, Mexico, Argentina and Netherland.

Visit Dramitinou’s ‘Astrocytes’ exhibition at The Shop Gallery (112 Glebe Point Road, Glebe) until Wednesday, July 3 from 11am to 7pm.
