Ilias Karras’ paintings are not simply two-dimensional; they are transformed by an internal light that gives life to their figures, pulling them out of their backgrounds. Full of meaning, but at the same time weightless, they float in the room like three-dimensional sculptures in a harmonic, non-chaotic way, communicating and interacting with the viewer. The artist treats the human body with great respect, but at the same time he reveals its supernatural dimension in a bold and knowledgeable fashion.
These living entities that emerge from the paintings withstand all rules of political correctness; they are disrespectful to an ever-narrowing world, touching the viewer’s widest range of feelings.
Ilias Karras uses a unique technique in his search for actual meaning in living forms. It’s a post-material alchemy of form, which acknowledges greatness and insignificance and takes all dimensions into account.
