Introduction

The text that follows
is written by the art historian
Polly Hatzimarkou, as an introduction
to the exhibition catalogue

Girl in the room, 2002, 90x120 cm, oil on canvas
"Angelos Spartalis creates using a traditional form of art -oil painting on canvas. His painting, however, simultaneously vital and plethoric, violent and sensitive, contradicts the above definition (traditional). Figurative experimentations and combinations of colour, free gesture and design techniques develop into unity-circles that close and open again, transferring traits from one to the other and borrowing ideas and questions and finally marking out an endless route, multicolored and gradually matured. Those bizarre circles are the ones that do not let the artist fall into a category in the mainstream of art. In MoTeR 1 we present this work -from the "Reflections" series to the most recent creations-; a -full of incentives- year's work. Deconstructed bodies, urban environments extracted from their conventional nature, are assembled in such a way that the tormenting conceptual suggestions of isolation, of the constructed human identity and the hybrid body, of the fragmented man as a mass unit, are all recalled and placed again in vigorous unruly representations."
