UPDATE | Jenny Skalkou chubby ladies upcoming series

A chubby girl is coming out of the solid rock forming slowly into
the personality its creator wishes to deliver.

Jenny Skalkou has set forth to a new series this summer. If everything goes as planned, three chubby ladies will adorn  our premises by the middle of the summer. Continuing into the surreal, somewhat funny path of the deformed heads series, the young sculptor discusses further the importance of pseudo-seriousness, normality and formality in a cruel world. The whole series will be in Thassos marble, unless the designed forms themselves lead their mother elsewhere and claim other texture.

Jhon Gogaberishvili | Life Pillar

<click on the photo to zoom in>
A smaller than the first one (which you can see HERE) of the two sculptures Jhon Gogaberishvili created in the premises of the Greek Marble Initiative, during his last visit, outside of symposium dates. The piece bears the dimensions 420x130x100cm. The form quite diverse is launched through careful carved and polished blunt projections which protrude to the sky. The colored parts once again play a balancing part, while the contrast of the deep red marble base ignites the whole form into the universe.

Givi Michailidis' teddy bear

A less fluffy yet sweet "teddy" bear has added up to the surreal works in the Initiative's yard. This is Givi Michailidis work, the first accomplished of his new series of Teddy Bears, a shear beauty, which our Action Photographer Eleni Tzotzi took for a walk-and-shoot all around. A heavier big brother of this bear waits patiently since last summer, almost done, to be fulfilled by the young Greek sculptor, hopefully this summer.
