Olga Alexopoulou is sparing with words, her images speaking in silence, mute words in a language beyond the common sign, a turbulence of depth. How far beyond language reposes a summit, an arctic landscape, a thriving anemone, the sea itself. And how far beyond theatre; yet still a play, that does not limit itself to detailing complexes, but rejoices in song - not the wild bacchanal, but the serene, omnipotent eternal joy of nature, whose dominion we pretend in vain to have mastered.

What is communicated through Olga's work is that art, mirroring nature, remains forever untamed, impossible to be exhausted by our ambitions. It lies exactly where those ambitions end, in the vast untamed dominions that life's communion with the imagination opens up before us; in the stars, the seas and summits that exist all around, while dwelling deep within.

The historian Nikos Sigalas, Institut Français d'Etudes Anatoliennes, writes: ‘The work on display constitutes nature's epic: austere in words (in the signs of men) yet powerful as the hour of the tempest or a summit's moment of illumined unconcealment. Olga Alexopoulou who was ‘Artist in Spotlight’ for 2014 at the International Exhibition Tio Ilar Athens, is sparing with words, her images speaking in silence, mute words in a language beyond the common sign, a turbulence of depth.’ Read less
