Nicelle Beauchene Gallery is pleased to present a suite of paintings by Athens-based artist Panayiotis Loukas. Fantastically saturated and uncannily complex, Loukas’s oil on canvas paintings tread in dream-like realms well beyond that which is strange and familiar. Like cabinets of curiosities, each work is a highly-detailed tableaux wherein microcosms of narrative action unfold. Loukas employs technical observation to concoct compositions that blend elements of psychedelia, folklore, horror, and popular culture.
Panayiotis Loukas (b. 1975, Athens, GR) lives and works in Athens, Greece. His work was recently included in the exhibition “The Same River Twice” curated by Margot Norton and Natalie Bell, organized by DESTE Foundation and New Museum for the Benaki Museum, Athens (2019). Loukas has also exhibited at State of Concept, Athens (2019); Dio Horia, Mykonos (2015, 2017); Onassis Cultural Center, Athens (2016); Chalet Society, Paris (2015); Kunstraum Innsbruck, Austria (2015); Family Business, New York (2013); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2012, 2013); and The Breeder, Athens (2007, 2008), among others.
