Overview

In Greek painter Sofia Petropoulou’s abstract pieces the formal aspects of art – colour, lines and composition – take precedences over the object of representation. Drawing from both the natural elements and the urban landscapes Petropolou does not escape from real sources, yet permits colour and gesture to dictate composition.
