Stella Kapezanou, David, 2017. Oil and acrylic on canvas. 170×210 cm

 

Stella Kapezanou is interested in images from everyday life, in habits that are considered to be “everyday” of people living in capitalistic and material western societies. Her paintings seem somehow unreal because they are, they depict scenes that never quite occurred, the sky is the ideal sky, the green grass the perfect stand-in for all lawns. The color reproduction happens in accordance with memory, not reality. The world gets captured not as it appears but as she wants to perceive it.
