A light you do not forget - Katerina Serafetinidou

Katerina Serafetinidou - A Light You Do not Forget, at the Skoufa gallery, Athens.

Landscapes in hues from brown to grey, with a limited scale of low tones and subtle tonal gradations, that emphasize contrasts of light and shadow, changing light and atmosphere conditions. There is an emphasis on the play of light and darkness at dusk. In some, like Blowing Up the World, figurative elements coexist with abstract ones. I love her landscapes.

Serafetinidou studied Applied Economics and Marketing & Advertising in London and after returning to Greece she worked in advertising for over a decade before shifting her focus to her family's century-old carpet business, renowned for its rare collection of rugs. All through this period, she attended art history seminars, took private painting lessons and finally set up her own studio in 2012.

looking closer - all around the edge of the canvas, the dates and names of places where catastrophes due to climate change have occured
