All what comes out of Atelier Kapnos is created with a fixation on the intensity of life. The works are experimentations even though they do not contain the element of novelty nor that of the smart idea. A single question repeats itself in continuous variations, expecting honest interpretations: ‘Where does the human expression rest?’.
In the aspect of technique, having painting as starting point and permanent reference, the mediums used range from traditional engraving, or embroidered textile, to filming of spoken texts and experimentation with language.
