In this painting, Paul floats shards of what looks like Ancient Greek style pottery on a timeless, spaceless gradation. The digital look of the background, airbrushed and with a technicolor sheen, inserts the fragments of what we otherwise idolize as a great civilization into a space of fabricated nostalgia and even humor.
Born in NY; Works in NY
If there was ever a rave held in the Ancient Greek and Roman section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Paul Anagnostopolous’ artwork would come closest to visualizing it. Paul’s body of work featuring male greek and roman figural motifs manipulate space and visual emphasis. The figures, a visual standard of western masculinity with homoerotic subtext, are shown in positions of vulnerability within rich landscapes drawn from Paul’s life. As well as subverting gendered expectations, Paul’s figures draw on his Greek and Italian heritage in addition to his childhood drawings of his grandparent’s replica ancient vases and classical statues.
