Sotiris Panousakis // Flip Dreams

September 25 – November 02

CAN Gallery is presenting Sotiris Panousakis’ solo show tonight at 20:00. Since 2006 and during the course of the current financial crisis in Greece, Panousakis has been shooting and then painting with his characteristic tromp l’oeil technique, street signs and shop windows, entertainment venues, interiors of schools and other public buildings. Architectural details appear at points accurate and photorealistic and elsewhere rough, expressionistic and out of focus along with ribbons, flags and store signs that feature as protagonists in his work together with words or phrases like ‘DREAMS’, ‘SUPER STAR’, ‘kids’, ‘HELLO_WELLCOME’ which transform the natural world to an existential portrait of the artist and our world. His oeuvre -through the depiction of spaces and the associations we make while reading- serves to conjure a new present which ultimately is both dreamy and political.
