YFES by Jo Dounis, is currenly being held at Gemelli Art Gallery in Ta’ Qali.
YFES – the Greek word for textures, hinting at her many years living in Greece – is emphasising the current way forward for the artist in her second solo exhibition in the last five years.
From the smooth and flowing finish of fluid art which Dounis is mostly known for, the versatile artist is surprising us with this completely different direction in technique. In this new collection of 28 paintings, she explores a variety of textures to create incredibly tactile works which portray an idyllic place or space in time. No human figures are present, and these pristine landscapes, seascapes, spaces, or atmospheres, created from the artist’s profound imagination and harmonious manipulation of colour and light, emit a surreal feeling of being transported into an alternative, Utopian world.
YFES by Jo Dounis is curated by Melanie Erixon and is being held at GEMELLI ART GALLERY, Ta’ Qali and is on till 26th November 2022. Opening hours: Monday – Friday: 8.30 am till 3pm
Saturday: 9am till noon.
