"Through Her Eyes: Melanie Prapopoulos"

New York, NY,
USA United States of America
Broadway Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition - Through Her Eyes, an exhibition of paintings and drawings by the artist Melanie Prapopoulos from December 17 through December 31, 2007. The show will feature paintings and drawings from several of the artist's bodies of work. The series "Rooms of Thought" portrays abstracted depictions of night shadows and reflected light, and symbolizes the search for forbidden knowledge. Melanie Prapopoulos has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2006. Born in Surrey, England, Prapopoulos currently divides her time between the US and Athens, Greece.
"Myth Translated" is a series of figurative charcoal and pastel drawings inspired by Afro-Cuban myths. "Shatterings of Light on Paper" are acrylic-on-paper paintings, representing the penetration of light - or hope - through darkness.
Melanie Prapopoulos comments: "I believe that an artist has something to say or point out - and due to my studies in art history and literature of Latin America and the Caribbean, my work is greatly influenced by what I have seen or read. I also find that these areas of my interest offer an unique artistic language, which results in a diverse vocabulary for expression. This coupled with ideas of dance result in what I feel is an often ignored reality, one grounded in strong lines and the unexplainable - not just for the peoples of these regions, but in an universal sense."
