Sophia Angelis "DeARTE" in Madrid, Spain.
During the Greek painter's Sophia Angelis participation in the exhibition "GESTOS" in Barcelona, Spain, that is being held from 6/1 till 6/29/2007 at GaleriaZero, she has been accepted an honorable proposal by the curator of the exhibition to participate in Art Fair in Madrid in January of 2008 ( 7 th Fair of Contemporary Art) at "Palacio de Congresos del Paseo de La Castellana" in Spain.
Sophia Angelis, apart from this Spanish Gallery, is represented by Agora Gallery of New York, a Gallery that since 1984 has been representing and promoting up-and-coming as well as established artists at Chelsea of New York and worldwide.
On December 14, 2007 she will exhibit in New York her works in the exhibition "The Odyssey Within".
Regarding her total work, the director of Agora Gallery mrs Angela Dibello, has written the following comment:
"While Sophia Angelis lives and works in Greece , her art transcends her residency. Armed with universal themes and an urgent desire to convey messages the everyday observers often overlook, Angelis paints with strength, joy and thought-provoking optimism.
For years Angelis struggled with serial tragedies that threatened to bind her, much like the ships tied at the jetty in her A' Period. However Angelis' triumph has been in realizing the vanity of our existence, reconciling with death and finding strength in the joy of life.
Sophia Angelis ' work explores the power of color and symbolism. From splendid landscapes to her portrayals of Greek culture, her paintings are poetry on canvas. She vividly expresses autobiographical experiences and existential quests in an attempt for a deeper perception into the human soul. Through her work, Sophia Angelis beckons the viewer to stop and rediscover life's true treasures, nature, peace, love and friendship.
Angelis' work has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the world."
