When loneliness creates an inner dialogue, exposing the fibres that hold together the tapestry of a fundamental belief system – we find a process captured beautifully by emerging artist Danae Patsalou.
Patsalou’s work weaves symbols of her Grecian heritage with her own personal talismans, hinting at a narrative of separation and subtle cultural conflict. Figures come to life on her wood panels, surreal blues and russet hues, each with vague and thinly sketched facial features. This use of abstract colouring and stylised profiling lends to Pastalou’s theme of loneliness – everybody becomes a little more anonymous, even the portrait entitled ‘Mother.’
Pastalou’s work is an invite to a particularly sensitive and beautiful personal journey that spans from England to Greece.
