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…
