Dimitri Grachis

Green Gallery

Grachis has stripped his canvas of all pretensions or borrowed gestures. On a white paint textured surface he manipulates a limited number of small forms . . . circles and rectangles in light or dark blue, sometimes one is yellow, all loosely brushed in. He uses this sparse imagery to perceptually engage the spectators attention, but without the employment of optical or eye ball flicker, but rather by a refined plastic sensibility.
