DIMITRA PAPAGEORGIOU - Greece
About her Art
I am a self taught artist living in Thessaloniki Greece.
My true passion has always been painting and creating.
Mostly I am painting original oil and acrylic paintings on stretched canvas and on old wood pieces or driftwood.
I am working with mixed technique using palette knives and brushes.
Inspiration is everywhere. I am influenced and inspired by the magnificence and splendor of the natural environment.
The beauty of a single flower, the sea with perpetual motion of the endless blue, or a panoramic wild coastline.
I am excited by the fleeting balance between strength and fragility in nature.
From all these miracles occurring around us daily, I am getting energy and inspiration. Vision captures the image, landscape, human, objects, shadow, light, colors.
With my imagination I can see my object more freely and looking for a different form that will reflects and expresses my own perception.
Creating a new image influenced from my personal experience, my character and the mood of the moment.
I am trying through my artworks to express my inner need to transform a personal experience and thereby to set me free from it. Ally with my unbridled imagination, juggling between reality and dream, completely engrossed in my paintings.
Artistic creation is a mean of relaxation, a free expression, an emotional release.....a wonderful journey..... a day at the beach of dreams..... a constant
search for the “ Perfect Wave “ !!
