Lena Papapanagiotou

Landscapes, images of the city which surrounds me and shapes my memories over the last 25 years. New paintings in oils, acrylics and mixed media.

My work is influenced by visual effects of light, shapes, powerful landscapes and also emotions and memories. I paint with all media which I like to mix, mono-print, collage, anything goes as long as it takes me by surprise.

There is usually a beginning of naturalistic study of the subject matter which gradually gives way to more interesting abstractions and reconstructions where the lines, shapes and above all colour, play an important part in the composition. I stop only when I feel I have deposited on the surface my untold feeling, a part of myself which the viewer is going to connect with.

I’ve been an artist since 1988 when I graduated from the Athens School of Fine Art and have taken part in several art exhibitions. Since 2004 I teach ‘Say it with Colour’ art classes and as from 2010 I manage ‘Hangingwater Studio’ at Nether Green, Sheffield.
