From the series “Made by Loula in GR”
Ι paint clothes or alter my clothes because through this process I feel that I uncover or discover myself as a member of the Greek community in which I live and interact.
Clothing is the witness of the individual in his/her absence revealing his/her social status both intellectual and financial. My attempt resulted in gigantic, imposing forms which emphasize discipline, rigor and superiority.
The imposing oversize clothes I paint created in me the need to attach titles to the works in a surrealistic vein. What pleases me by giving these titles is that it makes me feel that they change to some extent the painterly dimension through contradictory messages, humor, self sarcasm and irony.
The words “Made by Loula in GR” hides a utopia, a self sarcasm in the sense that despite Greece’s problems I continue to believe in making Art. I feel the need to declare my existence at this moment in this country and the space I live in!
Stathis Alexopoulos was born in Athens in 1976 where he lives and works. He studied sculpture at theSchool of Fine Arts Panormos Tinos and the School of Fine Arts of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Department of Fine and Applied Arts, where he graduated with distinction. One of his great interests is Sculpture in Public Places. His creations adorn many big Municipalities of Greece. He has co-operated with big companies and has participated with his creations in their advertising campaigns. Moreover he has created works of contemporary aesthetics for big night clubs in Athens.
He believes that contemporary sculpture should be based on the concrete values of classic sculpture, and that the shape and its dynamic are those which define a work of art and its meaning. He integrates the art of sculpture with the trends of contemporary design. He is interested in designing and creating useful objects, which still however remain works of art.
