Vasilis Avramidis’s “Resort Archeology” Series

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Interested in the ways history is preserved through artifacts, Vasilis Avramidis (first featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 26) paints mossy scenes that look like still lifes arranged for a painting and left forgotten centuries ago. Vestiges of architecture can be found within Avamidis’s overgrown landscapes in his new “Resort Archeology” series, where manmade objects appear obsolete and subjected to the indifferent passage of time. Coupled with minimalist, architectural designs that protrude from the flora, the Vanitas elements appear to refer to shifting ideals — not just in the history of art, but in Western culture in general. Avramidis will present the “Resort Archeology” series with The Contemporary London at the London Art Fair, January 15-19.
