ART & EXHIBITIONS: Shedding Light on the Face of Art


Bell, Lucy, Coventry Evening Telegraph (England)


Head, Faces and Figures, the Herbert Art Gallery, to June 13.

PANAYIOTIS KALORKOTI'S fascination with the human form is the basis of this exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry.

He uses figures, portraits, profiles and masks to explore his theme.

But you have to put in some work too! Kalorkoti's shadowy figures and silhouettes make you want to give the figures some relationship to each other and guess their thoughts and feelings.

There is rich colour and detail in some of the 'foggy' pictures - figures glimpsed in a glow of back light as though passed under a street light in a foggy street.

And the paintings of masks explore the international language of the human face - simple pointers to the deepest meanings and feelings.

Kalorkoti was born in Cyprus and studied Fine Art at Newcastle upon Tyne and the Royal College of Art.

He lives in Newcastle and has become one of the region's most prominent artists.

Stone beauty

James Seow's ''stone'' paintings, Southtown Gallery, Leamington until June 1 (Mon-Sat, 9am-6pm).

JAMES SEOW, a young and talented artist born of Chinese parents, was educated in Malaysia and has a Master's Degree in Engineering Business Management from Warwick University.
