DN: Mr. Costas Evangelatos - 2002

Costas Evangelatos' Greek Head looks as much male as female, for it combines a slender and delicate quality with an austere and fierce expression. Evangelatos used no other means but the tube to apply the paint onto the paper, in his effort to preserve the immediacy between maker and production. Cool colors were preferred as suggestive of the spiritual dimension. The represented person may spring from the realm of dreams, a metaphysical world. Although it resembles the single-line portraits that Yannis Tsarouchis is known to have made using pastel, nonetheless Greek Head is after a fiction of the artist's imagination, and his intention is far from realistic. Moreover, the Greek Head is unique with respect to its technique, with its spontaneous execution and its method of fabrication.
