Alexi Tsioris

Work

Text

In his artistic work Alexi Tsioris concentrates on the mediums of drawing, painting, monotype, and sculpture. Through these, the artist pursues one idea in particular: he layers bodies and figures, thus reproducing what is individual in the corporeal and symbolically turning the human being inside out. In his painting, engravings in layers of oil paint expose colors and forms, supplemented with an abundance of ornamentation. The sculptures are created through a process of adding, revealing playful, almost flowing gestures. Tsioris’s monotypes are probably the most important aspect of his artistic practice, combining the sculptural with the painterly. As a result, a unique formal language emerges in quick succession and through the multi-layered application of paint.
