  • Sofia Petropoulous new collection of paintings drifts between pure abstraction, landscape and still life. The characteristic

    ochre colour of her backgrounds provides a consistency through this collection, allowing the harmonious blocks and scrapes

    of colour to jump out at the viewer.

    Her paintings are directly inspired by the real world, a fact which lends every one of her canvases an element of familiarity.

    Petropoulous work exhibits an evident sensitivity for colour and intense attention to the quality of her brush-strokes.

    Movement, the subtle and intricate play and suggestion of light, these are the products of Petropoulous facility with the

    brush. Sofia is able to pick up on the smallest vital details of the spirit of her subject and from them, to extract a profound

    interpretation that walks the line between abstraction and naturalism.
