Panos Tsagaris’ “CHAOS (For Between The Light And The Darkness We Stand)” belongs to a series of works based on international newspaper covers with images related among others to the Greek crisis which the artist had been collecting for the last 8 years. In this work, the concept of the passage from darkness into light symbolizes the gradual disconnection from materiality and the slow awakening of higher consciousness. As the artist states: ‘Life is a “purification” process in which we try daily to elevate our “impure” self to the level where it can reunite with our “Divine” essence (awakened consciousness). For that goal we work simultaneously at a personal as well as at a collective level’.
