The Apotheosis

Fountain Court, Parliament of NSW
Macquarie Street, Sydney

Exhibition of selected art works, in the series “Drawing on Water” by Phillip George and “The Dance of Zalongo” by Margarita Georgiadis

The Greek War of Independence galvanized public sentiment across Europe. However, direct military action by nation states and foreign individuals was initially hesitant – unlike Lord Byron, most Europeans reconciled their Romantic vision of an independent Greece, as a vision best fought for by the Greeks. Yet the vision did inspire a generation of European writers and artists to action. Margarita Georgiadis and Phillip George boldly re-embrace this aesthetic apotheosis. Both use powerfully suspended and submerged criss-crossing fluid elements of place, space, time, introspection and loss, as metaphorical visions of ethereal substance and real time – Georgiadis in oils and George utilizing photo-media.

The physical exhibition has been postponed with new dates to be announced soon, however, the virtual exhibition is available to view now!
