SKPP Duo show with Polys Peslikas
PARTY Contemporary | Artist-run gallery, Nicosia, Cyprus, 2018
The title of the show is an acronym for Stelios Kallinikou Polys Peslikas, suggesting the coming together of two artists and the mediums they respectively use, photography and painting. Stelios and Polys are invited to respond to Party Contemporary artist run gallery space and converse in a way which reflects the intertwined history of painting and photography. Stelios, who tirelessly observes and documents the landscape of Cyprus, presents a group of photographs that verge on the painterly. Polys, who paints with an emphasis on the layering of colours and textures, utilises specific features of the space and found photography.
