Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos 3-dimensional illusionism  The play between sensation, perception and representation fascinates me. Within my work, I try to set up relationships that confound  our conventional understandings of ‘realistic representation’ and replace them with ideas about visual language and subjective  experience, a kind of visual trickery in witch painted forms seem to be real.I  make work which can be seen as both sculptural and  pictorial, where the 3-dimensional illusionism of the image conflicts with the actual dimensionality of the object upon which it is drawn.  Or i may make work which is simultaneously figurative and conceptually abstract. In all cases the goal is to build a relationship  between the subject matter, the representation of the subject and the materiality of the object which reveals something about what  goes on beneath  the surface  of my own consciousness Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos Art Gallery Santorini Oia Greek Artist Stavros Galanopoulos
