In his new photography exhibition, entitled ‘Land – Escapes‘, Nikos Vandoros aims to decode the self-evident representation of common landscapes. Mainly through night shots come to light and revive shapes and figures that
escape the mere glance. His basic theme being the open space and aesthetics of the night, Vandoros allows the lens to create the illusion of a parallel dimension. The landscapes of Vandoros release a mystical –mostly dark– figure, while recording
artistically that phenomena could be changing. His images’ colour refers to a modern magical realism or –more accurately– surrealism. As a colour leaping from the artist’s palette, a dialogue with illusionistic colours that can only be found in painting, he at times beautifully captures the intensities of light on the matter and, at times, risks as passage, with extreme
sensitivity as to the tones, to thousands infinitesimally different colour gradations, capturing the transitions from one tone to another. Sculptural volumes, robust compositions, axes and forms that appear, which are being revealed by the artist-photographer’s view, through the occasional landscape, create pictures that look freely staged from their creator’s artistic touch. The impact of Vandoros’s work is soothing, alternating with mystical hues, leading the audience to be instantly led to its own personal magic universe.
