Christiana Soulou returns to Bernier/Eliades Gallery with her third solo exhibition, Firmament. The 25 drawings on view are based on a study of the drawings of her previous work, Water, as well as a selection of her drawings from Imaginary Beings after Borges. The result is a deep dive into the fascinating realms of movement and animated forms.
Soulou's work exceeds narrative representation. It is investigative and enigmatic, going beyond mere representation to focus on the very essence of things. Adding to the already metaphorical nature of her oeuvre, the titles she has given to each of her works form a parallel textual artwork.
Inspired by nature, Soulou reveals the supernatural aspect of the world through precise lines and shapes, all drawn in pencil on paper. The artist's international fame and numerous exhibitions around the world, including a collaboration with Christian Dior (Dior Cruise Collection, 2022), testify to the impact of her work.
