Fotis Sarris (1937-2011). Painting at the Byzantine and Christian Museum

The Byzantine and Christian Museum presents until May 18, 2014 the exhibition Fotis Sarris (1937-2011).Painting which illuminates for the first time Sarris’ artistic journey in its entirety as well as his relationship with the Byzantine art.

The exhibition attempts to highlight the interactive relationship of the artist with the content and the patterns of the Byzantine painting tradition that is expressed through a deeply personal and primarily political artistic creation.

Sarris’ 75 works hosted in this exhibition are presented in three sections. The first is a partial reconstitution of the atelier and of the library of the artist, in order to demonstrate his research work and his close relationship with the pigments of the past as well as with the written sources that mention them. The long and thorough study and work of Fotis Sarris with the pigments of the post-Byzantine painters allow the public to get into direct contact with this source material. The second section presents Sarris’ secular production coming from all his artistic periods while the third contains his religious works.

The presentation of Sarris’ work in the premises of the Byzantine and Christian Museum gives to the visitors the excellent opportunity to follow the journey of the Byzantine iconographic patterns into the contemporary artistic language of the painter.
