Costas Coulentianos

1918 - 1995

The 1950s and early 1960s were pivotal in Costas Coulentianos' artistic evolution. During this period, he embarked on a significant artistic transformation by venturing into the direct creation of sculptures from metal sheets. This marked the initiation of his exploration of heightened abstraction. As part of this innovative journey, he pioneered a novel technique referred to as "fer brassé" in French. With masterful skill, he adeptly fused bronze, copper, lead, or tin directly onto iron, resulting in a distinctive and tangible texture that would become his artistic signature. Some of the artwork the sculptor made in this period was later cast in bronze.

An exemplar of distinctive "fer brassé" texture can be witnessed in his remarkable relief piece titled "Eubée" (see above) which vividly portrays the Greek island of Evia. This work was part of a larger series capturing the essence of various Greek islands, including Kythira and Crete, showcasing Coulentianos' mastery in merging texture and form.

Furthermore, 'Oiseau' and 'Sans Titre' are abstract, geometric sculptures that epitomize Costas Coulentianos' exploration of  form, texture, and abstraction in the 1960s. Beyond the confines of traditional sculpture, the sculptor also ventured into the realm of functional household objects, with the piece "Table" serving as an exemplary testament.

Parvine Curie


A recurrent theme in the artwork of Parine Curie is the subject of motherhood. The sculpture 'Grotte aux Doigts’ and the bas-relief ‘Relief aux Doigts’ symbolize two hands joined together, creating a protective shelter, a refuge, evoking the idea of unconditional love, tenderness and support. Curie’s artwork may seem abstract, but it is in fact a figurative expression, a vision of the world not locked into any code, a return to the primitive mother origin.  An important aspect of her sculptures is the open space within. The light passing through does not only define the forms, but also imbues her sculptures with spirituality.

Inspired by historical and sacred places, Curie’s artwork is a dialogue between architecture and sculpture and is meant to be a portal to another, more spiritual world. Not limited by the practical constraints of an architect, she feels that sculpture allows her to focus solely on the purity of forms.  Yet, from 2012 to 2015 Curie investigated the possibilities to combine functionality and sculpture when she created some pieces of furniture, of which ‘Cathèdre’ is a splendid example. She used the same themes that she explored in her furniture and sculpture on a two-dimensional surface in a series of embroidery.

Claude Mercier

1924 - 2019

From the very outset of his artistic journey, Claude Mercier worked directly in metal. In doing so, he became an instrumental figure in revolutionizing the language of sculpture through pioneering technical innovations in metalwork. Mercier soon embraced abstraction after an initial phase of semi-figuration. He developed a personal idiom by creating sculptures with satin and brilliant finishes, where metal shapes were harmoniously arranged into dynamic compositions that captured and reflected the light. Mercier not only created a multitude of sculptures, but also a significant body of reliefs that stood as an integral part of his artistic narrative.

Epanouissement par le Haut

Claude Mercier

1924 - 2019

Mercier’s vision was deeply influenced by the interplay of concave and convex forms. He alternated inward and outward curved shapes, weaving together lateral and vertical thrusts. By systematically redefining and repeating these shapes he evoked tension and pure rhythm. He wanted his sculptures to express a universal dimension and a sense of timelessness and elegance. In this context balance and the mastery of light were key. In his own words, "Space is constructed through what is manipulated," and his artwork became a captivating reflection of this concept, resonating with its surroundings and capturing and amplifying the essence of light.

Eva Papadopoulou

1979 -

Eva Papadopoulou, a relief artist and sculptor, reimagines the ancient art of mosaics with a modern twist. Her inspiration arises from the local Greek landscape, and she employs a unique, mixed technique she developed herself. Unlike traditional mosaics that lay flat, Eva arranges her compositions vertically, infusing them with motion and texture. Her work blurs the lines between relief and sculpture, with each fragment playing a crucial role in the overall visual narrative. She also upcycles local marble fragments, transforming them into artworks that challenge the weight of the material. Eva's art is a tribute to nature, reminding us of the profound connection between art, culture, and the natural world.
