‘Irregular Linearity’ Vicky Drosos

“The stuff of thought is the seed of the artist. Dreams form the bristles of the artist’s brush. As the eye functions as the brain’s sentry, I communicate my innermost perceptions through the art, my worldview” Arshile Gorky

Vicky Drosos is an artist born in Greece, and she currently lives and works in Athens. She studied in the Athens School of Fine Arts, under the supervision of Prof. Anastasios Christakis, whilst she was working in the field of graphic design. After spending a considerable amount of time in Naturalism, she completely focused in Abstract Art. Vicky’s progression is influenced by the works of Abstract Expressionists such as Wassili Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Antoni Tapies, Arshile Gorky, and last but not least Jackson Pollock. Improvisation, study of psychoanalysis, in addition with Japanese Art, have also contributed in Vicky’s studies, for depicting nature and its attributes, in connection with painting and personal experience, also in conjunction with the very process of painting, where the latter obtains a ritual and spiritual character, and more specifically when the canvas is being treated as a corpus which reflects feelings, memories and impressions. Landscape painting is the basic model of the creation of an “Ideal Place”, as this becomes unveiled through senses, fantasy and synaesthesia. The required result is not the depiction of a highlight, but the perpetuous movement of matter in relation to space, time and personal undergoing. Vicky’s works under the genre “Entropia”, completed during 2003 – 2006, engulfs this continuous movement, by making reference in an archaic and timeless world, where matter is on a constant kinesis and is being restructured through the free strokes on the canvas. The chromatic spectrum consists of hot and cold variations of grey, and the inkling of pure colours that tend to emerge. In later artworks such as “The Awakening” and “Mainland”, variations of grey have been substituted by saturated colours, maintaining a sense of balance and harmony, and thus creating joyful and optimistic feelings. Landscape representation is treated as an unsolved mathematical problem, causing queries about the structure of the cosmos and all these phenomena which shape our thoughts and our aesthetic criteria. The answer to this problem remains linked with the parts of our encephalus that takes us back in our childhood through experimentation and fantasy.
