Thomas Tournavitis writes:
“I compose the struggle, synthesis and decomposition. I compose portraits that deny the static. My painting embraces man in the world of movement.”
The single time of oppositions in space and the idea of constant change of motion, spring from the law of the universe. In EMBRACE series, the above embraces the color palette that is exposed to Greek light, creating ephoric harmony. Selected orbits and points form faces within the face, places within the place, moments within the moment. They depict the tragicomedy of the individual’s internal conflicts and attribute the variety of fluctuations of his consciousness to forms that impress. The cruelty of the figure has nothing to do with repulsive rebellion, with the consequence that the writing speaks to the limits of a reality in the world of motion.
