Elefteria Vlavianos

Elefteria approaches painting as a visual translation that hovers in the gap between representational and abstract painting. Imagery in her work is derived from her Greek/ Armenian heritage and her pleasure in the smallest of cultural objects that are often displaced. Working in a manner reminiscent of colour field paintings she remaps the surfaces with a repetitive vernacular marks. In these paintings – some left as simply as a vibration of colour Elefteria explores how colour, line and structure can re-articulate a past cultural aesthetic into a contemporary context.

Elefteria Vlavianos (born Zimbabwe) is a Sydney based visual. She graduated form the Australian National University School of Art in 2002 with 1st class Honours in painting and has a BA hon.
