"I compose the struggle, of composition and decomposition, synthesis and "apo-synthesis". I compose portraits that deny staticism. My painting embraces man in a world in motion . ” Thomas Tournavitis's new collection is entitled  E M B R A C E . Opening soon...  debut on 30th September 2021 in gallery Myro, in Thessaloniki.   All different forms in space, unite together in directions of the opposite, as well as the idea of ​​the constant change of motion is the stem of law of the universe. EMBRACE series embraces the color palette that is exposed to the Greek light, creating an euphoric harmony.         Selected orbits and points form faces within the face, places within the place, moments within the moment. They depict the tragedy of the individual's internal conflicts and attribute the variety of fluctuations of his consciousness to impressive forms. The cruelty of the figure has nothing to do with repulsive rebellion,... so the writing style speaks within the limits of a reality in a world of movement, in a world in motion."   Ο Θωμάς Τουρναβίτης γράφει. “Συνθέτω τη πάλη, σύνθεσης και αποσύνθεσης. Συνθέτω πορτρέτα που αρνούνται τη στατική. Η ζωγραφική μου αγκαλιάζει τον άνθρωπο στο κόσμο της κίνησης.”    debute Embrace collection 30 Σεπτεμβριου - 09 Οκτωβρίου 2021 Thessaloniki, Greece Myro Gallery Η ενιαία φορά των αντιθέσεων στο χώρο και η ιδέα της συνεχούς αλλαγής της κίνησης, πηγάζουν από το νόμο του σύμπαντος. Στη σειρά EMBRACE, τα παραπάνω αγκαλιάζουν τη χρωματική παλέτα που είναι εκτεθειμένη στο Ελληνικό φώς, γεννώντας εφορική αρμονία. Επιλεγμένες τροχιές και σημεία σχηματίζουν πρόσωπα μέσα στο πρόσωπο, τόπους μέσα στο τόπο, στιγμές μέσα στη στιγμή.       Απεικονίζουν τη τραγικότητα των εσωτερικών συγκρούσεων του ατόμου και αποδίδουν την ποικιλία των διακυμάνσεων της συνείδησης του με μορφές που εντυπωσιάζουν. Η σκληρότητα της φιγούρας δεν έχει σχέση με την απωθητική εξέγερση, με συνέπεια η γραφή να μιλάει στα όρια μιας πραγματικότητας στο κόσμο της κίνησης.                                              Τα εγκαίνια θα πραγματοποιηθούν την Πέμπτη 30 Σεπτεμβρίου 2021 στις 07:30μμ. Η έκθεση θα διαρκέσει μέχρι το Σάββατο 9 Οκτωβρίου. Gallery Myro Thessaloniki  tel: 231 026 9187

The Artist

"Faces in a face, moments in a moment, places in a place. The idea of continual change, law of the universe, along with the unity of contradictions in space, reveal a personal colour palette exposed at the sunlight. Selected orbits and points of my oils, compose morphs that refuse the static. A Modern Greek viewpoint about the portrait in a world in motion." 

Thomas Tournavitis was born in 1981 in Athens, Greece. 
He studied at the atelier of sculptor Nikos Stefos (1997-1999). He graduated in 2005 from the University of Fine Arts in Derby (UK) with a BA in Fine Arts and continued his postgraduate studies in Berlin, Germany (2006-2007). He worked as a former Lecturer at the DIEK in Volos and as an Art teacher in public and private Primary Schools in Greece (2008-2010). Since 2008 has enjoyed a successful painting career in which he has been the subject of 34 international solo exhibitions. He has featured in over 133 painting group shows and major public visual projects worldwide. His works adorn private collections in Melbourne, New York, Miami, Paris, Munich, Zurich, Vienna, Montpellier, London, Busan, Athens, Zagreb, Nicosia, Sarajevo and many more. T T Studio is located at the mountain Pelion in Greece.
