THE ETHEREAL, THE MAGICAL AND THE ELUSIVE IS WHAT ROULA PAPPAS TSIOTA HAS MANAGED TO CAPTURE IN HER UNDERWATER PAINTINGS.

 

THE DEEP PURPLES AND VARYING SHADES OF BLUE ARE LYRICALLY COMBINED WITH PASTELS SUCH AS CORALS TO TRANSPORT THE VIEWER TO AN UNDERWATER WORLD THAT  IS SELDOM SEEN.

THESE UNDERWATER PAINTINGS ARE A REPRESENTATION OF HER INNER REALITY. AND SO, HER PAINTINGS ARE A CREATIVE EXPRESSION OF HER SOUL THAT CARRY YOU TO A FAIRY-TALE-LIKE WATERY DIMENSION. 

 

THE INTERPLAY OF THE SEAS RHYTHMIC MOVEMENT, CREATED BY A SPATULA TECHNIQUE INSTEAD OF THE TRADITIONAL PAINTBRUSH AND THE SUNSHINE REFRACTED THROUGH A MELLIFLUOUS ENVIRONMENT MAKE THE OCEAN BED COME TO LIFE.
