Javier Vilató, Catalan artist and nephew of Pablo Picasso, Gisèle Deneumoustier, one of the most talented Belgian printmakers of her generation, Jindrich Zeithamml, Czech abstract sculptor and printmaker and Emmanuelle Mellot, Parisian printmaker and decorator, are the subject of very special exhibition at the Loggos municipal gallery in Paxos this summer, from 9 July to 3 August 2015.
All generations and styles of printmaking, black and white and color, figurative and abstract, are represented in this show. Vilató ‘s and Mellot’s prints evoke the Mediterranean world through their luminosity, the sensuous beach bathers in the Catalan’s prints and the exuberant marine life in Mellot’s. A more romantic, mistier atmosphere pervades the prints – seascapes, trees, lovers’ beds – of Deneumoustier and also Zeithamml’s mysterious, softly luminous and symbolic shapes.
Emmanuelle Mellot will be coming to Paxos for an artist’s residence on 13 July. She will be running two print workshops on a new press next to the exhibition at the Loggos schoolhouse for the rest of the month, the first for children and a second one for adults.
