Yiannis Papadopoulos

ianI try to translate my ideas into structural forms to express the antithesis of the in and out to penetrate through a transparent surface into the inner world, to communicate.
In terms of form, my works are poised on the boundary between a freely developing open form and a controlled disciplined structure.
I like this contradiction.
I use threads, strings, rattan and mainly handmade paper which I make myself so I can have the exact paper I need for each piece.
During the period from my studies to today I have used many different media.
But two remain steady.
Painting and drawing.
The ones I began with.
