“Thrivers” exhibition, Loula Metaxa, by Rosângela Vig

“Thrivers” exhibition¹

Rosângela Vig is a Visual Artist and Teacher of Art History.

Each work of art is a child of its age and, In so many cases, mother of our emotions. Each period of Culture produces its own Art that can never be repeated. Efforts to revive the artistic principles of the past will produce, at best, an art that is yet to be born. It is impossible for us to live and feel as the ancient Greeks. (KANDISNKY, 1977, p.1)

Each period has its own beauty and the way the artist found to interpret the world around him..


And the Art always finds new and unique ways to be herself, to construct new means and new interpretations of what the eye perceives.

Perhaps this is the way that artist Loula Metaxa found to make her personal interpretation of the world around her.

The series of 90 The artist's paintings are a journey of sensations, that walks through the emotional field, narrating the trajectory of souls, with the aim of prospering.

Thought gives the observer the opportunity to walk through its core, for your most secret fears and sensations, bringing them to the surface, transmuting them into prosperity.

Drawing from a very young age, the artist, degree in Psychology and Business Administration, studied Master's degree in Human Resources Management.

His training allowed him to work with the analysis of the human soul in its various aspects and Art came as a way of capturing what is imprinted on the soul but cannot be externalized with words..

From the images, It is possible to wander through psychological states; navigate the past; one can imagine thoughts; and perhaps lead to recognizing the moods of life itself.

In figure 2 the artist left an impression of the state of mind, as if the character's thoughts wandered through memories and the field of sensations.

With my eyes closed, the woman in the image is absorbed and introspective. She doesn't notice the world around her, just your thoughts.

It is quite possible that such a state of mind leads the gaze to colors, shapes like loose thoughts, strolling across the spiritual field, as if words were spoken through random images.

The curator of the exhibition is Magdalena Wozniak-Melissourgaki, also Ambassador of Greece to the World Art Academy and acclaimed Polish-Greek artist, whose works are in private and corporate collections in countries such as the USA, Canada, Italy and Germany.
