DESPINA ZOGRAFOS
THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT
April 11 - May 24, 2024

Virtual Exhibition Opening
Thursday, April 11, 2024 | 10:00 AM

 

Lola Shepard is thrilled to announce the debut of DESPINA ZOGRAFOS: THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT a virtual solo exhibition presenting an exquisite collection of fourteen abstract works on paper and a short film entitled “Creatures of Light.” This virtual exhibition will premiere on the gallery's website beginning Thursday, April 11, 2024, at 10:00 AM, and will remain accessible until May 24, 2024.

THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT delves into the methodology, materiality, and conceptual depths of Despina Zografos' dynamic abstract paper art practice. Zografos’ body of work spans various mediums, including acrylic paintings, hand-cut paper works, and alternative photographic processes such as cyanotype and solar plate etching. Through a process of subtraction and the interplay of light and shadow, the artist explores the multiple possibilities generated by the use of a single geometric motif.

Central to Zografos' artistic process is her meticulous and meditative approach to paper cutting, resulting in multi-layered works that transcend the surface, beckoning viewers to explore dimensions beyond. Through experimentation with various mediums, Zografos establishes connections between her art, her inner world, and the timeless allure of paper as a medium of expression.

Artist ( Description ): 

Despina Zografos is an artist whose creative vision is deeply rooted in the intricate realms of hand-cut paper, cyanotype, and solar plate etching. Skillfully blending layers of meticulously crafted paper with acrylic paint or employing alternative photographic techniques, she delves into the exploration of light, shadow, and geometric motifs.

Drawing inspiration from her own shadow, the delicate patterns of spiderwebs, and the nostalgic designs of her beloved family doily heirlooms, Zografos crafts compositions that beckon viewers into a world of geometric wonder. Through meticulous repetition, playful variations in shape, and subtle shifts in scale, her artwork transforms into stunning abstract expressions.
