About

The works by Christo Daskaltsis are truly abstract. Titled only with the date of production, such as in this case 0420-01, the works are left open to interpretation by the viewer. The artist's methodology remains the same for each of his paintings. Using oil paints on an aluminium canvas, the artist relies on the chemical reaction between the oil paints and turpentine which he applies to dissolve the pigments in the paint. Using then a broom, the artist laboriously works over the surface of the canvas to create breathtaking results. The finished works monochrome and yet full of nuance. Through illusion the elements of the painting seem to rise beyond the canvas or invert invert but the surface remains two-dimensional. The compositions may be perceived as the surface of a planet, a snowy landscape, detail of a rock or the view through a microscope - it truly lies in the eye of the beholder. The painting is signed and dated by the artist on reverse. The artist Christo Daskaltsis was born in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1969 after his parents had immigrated from Greece in the early 1960s. Setting up a studio in Berlin, Daskaltsis developed an elaborate methodology through which his works come into being. Removing himself from figurative and concept art, Daskaltsis chose to focus on the process of creation rather than the outcome. Through the application of paint on canvas or aluminium and the subsequent treatment with turpentine and the sweeping of a broom working always on the floor, Daskaltsis is able to produce works that are devoid of any formal composition and physical traces of the artist’s hand. This methodology eliminates the influence of preconceived ideas of composition or subject.
