Govedarou Art Gallery, G. Papandreou 5 (former Antheon, Georgiou stop) in Thessaloniki, Greece organizes in its space the solo exhibition of the artist and internationally awarded watercolorist George Politis entitled "Santorini".
A few words from George Politis about this exhibition.
I visited Santorini for the first time in the summer of 2018. It was "love at first sight". Source of inspiration; How else to do it? The combination of the blue of the sky and the sea with the white (usually) of the houses and churches, the resulting contrasts, the transparency and the shadows (often intense, thanks to the dazzling light) give those elements that are reference points for watercolor. . Four years later, I continue my search in Santorini, trying to discover it step by step. And I'm sure the road is still very long…
Art critic Elli Kokkini has written the following about the work of George Politis:
"… Through the transparent ways of his artistic approach, George Politis gives us his own references with more sensitivity, translating the tactile images into visual… His color palette, clear as water, sometimes invests the entire surfaces of his design types and in other cases only parts of them, particularly exposed to light, leaving to be reflected its reflections and the immediacy of its effect on the texture and the diversity of their construction materials ".
