Gaspare Manos
« The Venice Paintings »

Opening with the presence of the artist
Thursday January 21th from 6pm to 8.30pm

The realm of visual recollection takes in a far greater field of phenomena than the chromatic
sphere alone; among the ingredients of our memory, our data base of recollected witnessings,
are to be found tastes and smells, textures registered not only by the eyes alone but also by the
fingertips, temperatures and humidities which mingle together to capture a precise recalling of
qualities of light, times of the day and of the year: a cornucopia of sensations which, evoked in
their totality, enabled the great painter Willem de Kooning to declare, painting is a glimpse,
and long before him, Leonardo da Vinci to insist, una cosa mentale –painting is a thing of the
Gaspare Manos is able to avail himself of a particularly rich spectrum of visual experiences
stored in his accumulative spice-chest of sensations, atmospheres, phanopoeia: from the
Thailand of his birth to the Kenya of his childhood, from his formative years in farflung
localities from Greece to Switzerland, London to Paris, from the Venice and Dalmatia of his
ancestors to contemporary Hong Kong or Manhattan.

Σε αυτήν την γκαλερί υπάρχουν κήποι που εξελίσσονται

Στην Αίθουσα Τέχνης Ρεβέκκα Καμχή δεκαέξι καλλιτέχνες δημιουργούν με τα έργα τους ένα κήπο σε διαρκή εξέλιξη.

Ήλια Μπούρα

Δεκαέξι καλλιτέχνες συναντίουνται στην Αίθουσα Τέχνης Ρεβέκκα Καμχή, για να δημιουργήσουν έναν ετερόκλητο, με την πρώτη ματιά, κήπο, τα έργα του οποίου, σαν ζωντανοί οργανισμοί, επικοινωνούν και συνδέονται τόσο οργανικά, ώστε να δημιουργούν ένα, σχεδόν, φυσικό περιβάλλον που εξελίσσεται. Το ενδιαφέρον στην έκθεση είναι ο τρόπος με τον οποίο πραγματώνεται τελικά αυτή η συνύπαρξη μεταξύ του κάθε κήπου – έργου και πώς τελικά το αρμονικό σύνολο που βλέπεις αποτυπώνει την έννοια της εξέλιξης στην κυριολεκτική και μεταφορική της διάσταση. Κάθε κήπος, σαν ο περιφραγμένος προσωπικός χώρος του κάθε καλλιτέχνη, αναπτύσσεται και σε ένα δεύτερο επίπεδο πιο προσωπικό και υπαρξιακό, δίνοντας μια άισθηση ροής και κίνησης, σε έναν χώρο σταθερό, όπως η Αίθουσα Τέχνης Ρεβέκκα Καμχή.

"Being an architect is about experimentation and a constant exploration, challenging and refining concepts in a dynamic and collaborative process."

Athens is my home; a vibrant city of contradictions, that hides endless obscure charms, and where the rhythms of modern life weave into an urban fabric so indicative of its past. It is this wavering balance that draws me to cities and traveling with basketball and volleyball teams in school I had the chance to explore the cultures of cities across Europe. My adventures were always on foot, roaming and wandering cities, camera in hand (getting lost, more often than not), choosing to experience the art, music, food and the everyday.  Architecture began as the meeting point of creative and scientific subjects in school, where I took art and design alongside maths, physics and economics, finding relevance in all. 

It was during my studies at Oxford Brookes though that architecture became the experimentation and development of a variety of design processes, and a constant exploration, challenging and refining concepts in a dynamic and collaborative process. Choosing a unit that investigated the exotic and consuming culture, Cappadocia became the most recent travel destination, with an astonishing landscape seen from a hot air balloon.  Aspiring to work in a highly collaborative environment, on diverse projects brought together by artistic thinking and an explorative spirit, joining RPP has made me excited to work, where the interaction of clients, consultants, artists, and specialists, takes over the studio and encourages proposals that are engaging to experience.
