To Trito Mati, the third eye.
In Buddhism, the third eye symbolizes the entry of higher consciousness. It has been used to describe a sensory between the two halves of the brain, a portal to enlightenment and as a reference to the Pineal gland, which produces Serotonin, Melatonin and controls the body’s internal clock. This invisible eye unlocks the unseen, allowing our species to render deeper knowledge beyond our waking reality, a remedy to our myopic earthly senses.
The presented artists share the desire to peer through the lens of the third eye, to open their artistic selves to complex realities and mysteries of life, myth and consciousness.
These investigations manifest themselves into visual language utilizing mysticism and purification in the paintings of Panos Tsagaris. The Trito Mati activated in the god/man spirits inhabits the works of Stelios Karamanolis. Our circadian rhythms, and experience of myth and allegory, are explored in the passage of Antonakis’s portal. These three artists place great value in respecting an intuition for the beyond, a bond to the existential, an internal link to the heavens.
