About

Kalfayan Galleries presents Karolina Krasoulis' solo art exhibition entitled 'Wish'.


The exhibition continues the artist's research on the representation of visual phenomena, which are connected to the functions of memory and
language. The viewer is invited to decipher the "wish" expressed by each work that balances between the concept of hope and the unrealized, desire and the unsatisfied, between the present and the future, the real and the metaphysical.

Krasoulis' "wishes" sometimes take the form of drawings with colored pencils on paper, and sometimes they are expressed through her stitched canvases. The latter are the result of a time-consuming process in which the artist prepares the canvas, creates the colors, paints the canvas with oil and gesso, and then artfully stitches it, concealing the seams. The artist gives the canvas shapes that refer to, for example, folded pages of paper, books or folders.

Her new works capture the multi-layered symbolism of a "wish", and at the same time are "open" to interpretation. For Roland Barthes ("Theory of Texts") every text is woven of earlier references. This "intertextuality" can also be found in Krasouli's works. The multilayered nature of the new projects is a material reflection of this. Krasouli treats and 'folds' the canvas like paper, and then adds elements of writing.

The starting point of the gestural process of writing is the inspiration that Krasouli draws from literature, and more specifically, from poetry, autobiography and non-literary prose. Sewing, painting, draping the canvas, patterning and spatial mapping on paper are all contemplative processes.
