Surreal Paintings Depict the Duality of Man and Nature’s Relationship

Time and time again we come across themes of nature and man switching between working together and in opposition of one another. Oftentimes a series sticks to one stance, but Greek painter Vasilis Avramidis depicts the duality of man and nature’s relationship in his surreal landscape oil paintings, merging the two entities and allowing them to play off of each other.

In the artist’s series of interesting environmental renditions, man and his creations are of the Earth. Nothing is man-made that is incapable of being swallowed by the mossy green land on which it rests. At times, even man himself is part of the emerald landscape that engulfs and supports architecture and made objects. So is it a struggle to keep afloat or an agreement to work as one?

Avramidis’ thought-provoking paintings will be on display as part of his first UK solo exhibition entitled Caretakers at Jacob’s Island Gallery through October 20, 2012.
