MARINA EROTOKRITOU: THE ARTIST, A TRUE COPY OF HER OWN CREATION

THE ARTIST, A TRUE COPY OF HER OWN CREATION
  

One of the most surprising representations of Cypriot contemporary painting (waiting for a general recognition) is Marina Giannou Erotokritou. Born on 21 June 1979, in a family of parents-refugees (with some Polish origines), after their town, Achna, had been occupied by Turkish troops, during the war in 1974, the artist lived and spent her childhood in the free zone of the district of Famagusta. She followed the secondary education courses at the College St. George from Larnaca, then, she graduated a specialisation in Marketing at Faculty of Finance. She began painting still at the tender age of 5 years, studying paint-art in various private schools, for a period of 8 years. She had tried several styles and techniques, on different materials. In the last 9 years, she lived in Nicosia, where participating in a few workshopuri organised in the capital city of Cyprus. She exposed works in collective exhibitions in Cyprus, Greece and Italy, enjoying the attention of  critics and the specialized press. With a surrealistic tone, her creations materialized in a few projects, of which we mentioning: "The outlook of Woman" (10 works) and "The Man", a series of male-portraits. In the first of these, Marina Erotokritou is trying to externalise a woman's inner world. By performing the work in her own workshop, as completion, the artist felt that she identifies, as a matter of fact, with her own creation. The result is a projection of her own soul.  The artist captures living inside, her contours speaking as well as  unspoken words, the colours are their steam… When the artist considered that they are not the absolute expression, takes their place, transforming herself into her own creation. Her presence between her works not distinguished her, on the contrary… Finally, you don’t know which is the artist and which is her creation…In what follows here, it is a selection from the plastic universe of Marina Giannou Erotokritou, who is coming for the first time in Romanian space, like a rainbow from  Aphrodite’s Wonderland.
