About artwork: The Mermaid and the Knight

Natalia Kostaki  is a Greek- Russian contemporary  artist. She lives in Athens and is best known for her vivid, brightly –hued paintings that invite a broader understanding of symbolic paintings. She has developed a unique visual aesthetic. Melding iconography, design, art-historical and mythological motifs, and personal experience, the artist creates densely patterned works. Utilizing geometric shapes and colourful graphics, the artist creates optically  compelling visual effects.

The knight’s honour requires to save the lady. He is carrying her away into the oblivion. However, does the lady want to be saved? Perhaps the knight made a mistake. A mermaid is a free spirit, a rebellious independent creature who decides her own fate. As a symbol of a woman nowadays, she refuses to be saved. The knight needs to reconsider his calling. What if the two characters could face each other freely, and find a common path? But the face of the knight is obscured just yet. He is on the search of his own, new identity.
