Ellie Lasthiotaki – ETHEREALITY
Artist Profile: Ellie Lasthiotaki
17 Mar, 2022
Gallery 1819 is proud to present Ellie’s new solo exhibition at the gallery: “Ethereality”. The new exhibition is
comprised of a body of works, sensed as visual poetry, externalizing her personal choice to see the beauty,
passion and empathy of the world we live in. Ethereal comes from the Greek word for “Ether” which in Homer’s Greek it was referred to the clean sky and weightlessness.
Ellie is employing scribbling and abstraction along with a wide spectrum of media, which has made her painterly style recognisable in the art scene, as a vehicle to transfer herself and the viewer to places where magic happens. She is utilizing Nature, being the eternal link between humans and earth, as the driving force to create a visual spiritual narrative of positivity where the horizon kisses the waves, the waves reciprocate the kiss, the trees are hugging dancing queens, while the glowing rays of the sun are dispersed on all beings on earth. This new body of works more than ever is an honest attempt to humbly try to suppress the bellicose selves and instead reconnect with the inner selves from visual stimulation. Bringing forward the emotions, the sensations and perceptions of what we see and how affects the mindset in a way that it activates positive shifts to the chemical and neural circuits of the brain. These works embody her intuitive need, in her own visual language, to capture emotions, space and this feeling of ethereality where everything is possible in a contemporary context, hoping people can relate to the artwork and in essence be moved and enchanted by the magic of art.
Ellie is a twice finalist at the prestigious International Artist Grand Prize Competition at Art RevolutionTaipei,
she has held many solo and group exhibitions, she has been warmly received by our Gallery 1819’s collectors, hence she has a strong base of avid followers.
