CONCEPCIÓN BALMES, (2009)
“Through a sensitive and musical colouring her work come to us like a breath of fresh and spring-like air. Her compositions are populated with characters that are interwoven in shape and colour, creating a pattern that lights up an original and dynamic universe.”
Painter of dreams.
Psychologist by profession, Daphne Anastassiou is basically a creator, a painter of dreams. Her unique work arises from a process of personal development.
Daphne takes up the tools of painting to initiate a conversation with herself, a dialogue that evolves and opens doors, resulting in a very interesting and authentic work.
Daphne’s paintings are created on the vague border between physical reality and the invisible world. To this artist, the images emerge like the concretion of sensations that come from her subtle perception.
Through a musical and sensitive coloring, her work come to us like a breath of fresh and spring-like air. Her compositions are populated with characters that are intertwined in shape and colour, creating a pattern that lights up an original and dynamic universe.
Human feeling is at the beginning of practically all the work of this psychologist who has been painting for several years. Here colour and composition are totally free and operate as a kind of ritual.
The being is the center, has the leading role of the pictorial adventure. This being is created, multiplied, and diversified in front of our eyes. The human being is starting the point, the first creation that causes a diverse chromatic universe, barely tied by a simple and skillful black graphic.
The human and the divine here and now. A woman, a man, a crowd, a vibration.
After seeing these paintings we are left with a deep feeling of love.
The heart and the authenticity as fundamental values.
