Vasilis NatsisPresented by the Greek Festival of Sydney
16 March- 20 March 2016
Opening Night: Wednesday 16 March 2016; 5-7 PM
This exhibition celebrates the work of the late Greek-Australian artist Vasilis Natsis from the 1960s to the early 2000s. His striking images reveal his love of the stark beauty he saw in the urban landscapes and architecture of Greece or the weathered coastlines of Australia. Whether inspired by the juxtaposition of a jutting balcony and a church dome, the memory of an Athens square in times gone by, or the bleakness of solitary rugged outcrops around Sydney’s coast, his nostalgic fascination is expressed with rigorous attention to structure, perspective, line and tone in meticulously executed pen-and-ink drawings and in carefully composed photographs.
