CM: Panagiotis Linardakis' Explosion was intended to represent an urchin. In the tradition of Action Painters, he had placed the canvas flat on the floor and laboured upon it in a violent manner. He said: "I enjoy to work violently in terms of limits, speed, and thought". In the process of its making the original intention was abandoned. For Explosion Linardakis chose to use a spatula for the relief at the center, and poured on it - with controlled mastery - a glass of coffee from his own height. Explosion materialized independently of the events of the day. It rather relates with man's psychology when encountering troubles in daily life. Explosion is at the threshold of transition. Though starting off as an autobiographical artwork, it ended up recording timelessly a moment of creative tension. Explosion has been presented by Medusa Art Gallery of Athens abroad.
