Glorious Greek Gods

When the ancient Greeks defined their supernatural world, they saw not just giant wild animals and frightening monsters, but also gods. Gods that personified every admirable or fearsome trait of humankind, but magnified to epic proportions by virtue of their power and responsibility.

Through his figurative works, George Patsouras deftly captures this enhanced, super humanity in his skillful depictions of ancient and modern mythologies. Mr. Patsouras’ lush portrayals of the deities Athena, Apollo, and Persephone are studies not just of form, but of deep mood and intricate environments. These elements each offer dimension to his works, alternating between photographic clarity and painterly expression.

George’s artful eye is also drawn to the timeless, and perhaps most pervasive of all mythological creatures: the vampire. His undead subjects — while few — are both alluring and bloodied, hinting perhaps at the price to be paid by mere humans who strive for the power of the gods.
