The work, “Haunted Souls”, by Andreas Theologitis seeks new forms of expression by limiting the models in the confines of a studio. It is this game of shadow and light, combined with everyday textures, reflections, transformations and distortions which challenges the viewer and disturbs his perception.

Female and male models, willingly anonymous, pose through foggy membranes, renouncing their identities. Like surging and receding tides, Andreas creates a unique space with sensual and enigmatic bodies, as if they were breaking surface from a dark abyss. Normal persons, confined in their everyday lives, try to get out of their uncertain and ominous reality, sometimes mocking their own being and their naked substance.

The models of Andreas move in the shadows, express their hidden feelings, shout their pain out loud to the world, like the 1890s paintings of Edvard Munch who depicted the agony of the human being and of the artist himself.

Today, Andreas – in a rather dark mood – captures the nebulous landscape of human nature, naked, without a clear contour, in the turmoil of a deep social crisis. In this body of work Andreas focuses on the meaning rather on the technical ability or the “beauty” of the human body. He shows us with honesty the inner world of the stressful feelings of his models. [Dr Nina Kassianou curator]

Artist Statement

His work is marked by intense geometric forms resulting from his background in architecture and which define his style in photography. His photographs express in a powerful way the detail of color, texture, material, leaving the imagination of individual viewers free to create their own particular image.
In the latest years Andreas Theologitis try to go beyond a mere study of the human body. He turn insistently around the exploration of particular aspects of the nude, where aesthetics are combined with an almost ideological dimension.
