Lazongas: Paintings – Drawings 1983-1993. The Christos Christofis Collection
16 Fokionos Negri presents the exhibition “Lazongas: Paintings – Drawings 1983-1993. The Christos Christofis Collection” with 25 works of art, collages and drawings, from the Christos Christofis Collection.
Yorgos Lazongas considers drawing “the honesty of art” and has always thought of it as autonomous form of art. He has stated that “drawing has always been an affinity. Not only it has been an inseparable part of my work, but it has also been interwoven with my personal history, experiences, agonies and protests or even matters of personal concern”.
The works presented in this exhibition are from some of the artist’s favourite subject matters (the female nude, warriors, Iliad and Odyssey) and others, less known to the public, butof equal significance.
All the works are exhibited for the first time.
The collector Christos Christofis will give guided tours on the following dates:
- Saturday 7 February at 12:30
- Saturday 14 February at 12:30
- Saturday 21 February at 12:30
