Day and Night, Bust by Kostas Paniaras (20th Century, Greek)


Share On Social Media


Kostas Paniaras was born in 1934 in Kiato, Corinthia, and died in 2014 in Athens. In his ‘Day and Night’ (1979-1987) series he used two basic colours, red and blue, and emphasized their basic contracts with mythical, dramatic interventions of gold and silver. As a Greek artist, Kostas Paniaras strives to deal with a prodigiously large cultural heritage, the burden of a long past. His works have as their starting-point the often abused plaster copies of symbols of antiquity; yet he also begins with authentic museum exhibits. He indiscriminately insinuates himself in all of these: he overpaints them, bisects them, multiplies them. He renders clear, discernible, and recognizable the theme of historical memory and its consequences. Signed "Day and Night" Paniaras. 3" x 4". Good condition.
