Vasiliki Sarri is a painter but could very well be termed a multimedia artist. In her own words she does sculpture on canvas and mosaic composed of natural materials. Having received university training as a biologist, Sarri establishes a keen relationship to the materials she employs on her canvases: stones, glass in all its several forms, iron, bronze filings, quartz sand, pyrite, cast iron, sulfur, aluminum, copper, fabrics which she finds in mines and forges along with the more traditional oil and powder pigments. As a consequence Sarri’s works dispose a rich relief surface that is very compelling to the eye of the beholder.
“Remember that, whatever may surround you, your body is just a boat within an ocean of knowledge and senses and its captain is your Soul”
Art tames Matter with kindness, steers it towards something higher, takes the raging waves and the hard rocks and turns them to land, a golden sandy beach with the beauty and measure of harmony that is defined by the imagination and soul of the artist.
