About the artwork: Konstantinos Michalos belongs to a new artist generation, where personal expression prevails over a stylistic proposition, and thus his artwork is more empirical than depicting a certain technique. He expresses through his paintings his psychological drives as well as his philosophical, spiritual and social concepts.
The artwork Internment 3: Despair peaks at some point of the desperate cycle, after the cycle has closed into an infinite regress. Anxiety produces more anxiety. Dark thoughts produce darker thoughts. But nevertheless, it is precisely in the cul-de-sac where we are able to break free. The contrast to opaque black can only be blinding light, whiteness, an unwritten page, a new beginning. When the old substance as we knew it crumbles, the new and the unknown can break through the debris. It breaks through not with a hesitant, timid ray, but with full force. There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.
