The Dancer is my personal piece – result of the painting circle at the village of Apollona in Rhodes island. A painting depicting a figure floating along the lines, becoming the movement through the colours, embodying perfectly the shapes from which is created and therefore creating the shapes…this painting embodies so well the idea of the Form to be arising from the Flow, as a result of the liquid colours.
The Dancer was created on the ground, near the earth and the soil, within a circle of people, connecting into a creative practice. This acrylic painting on cartolino is part of a 44 paintings series that were created during the project NOA. It’s dimensions are 24 x 30 cm and can be mounted on a wall just by itself as it is made on a hard surface.

The project NOA was about painting circles in nature, one circle in every village of the island I was born and I grew up, Rhodes. It took me 2 and a half months to complete, as I was cycling with my bicycle from one village to the next, offering art workshops to the locals of all ages.
You can get a deeper understanding about the project here, in a 15min video I created around it, using my vlogs, diary video recordings. It’s on my YouTube channel here:
All of the 44 artworks, along with the video and the materials and tools used in the workshops, were exhibited in an art show in the historical building of the French Consultant on Rhodes, Greece, in August 2022.
