The exhibition of artworks by Vassilis Skylakos(1930-2000) titled, “Here, there and everywhere” is on view at Roma Gallery from 07.11-07.12.2019. The curator of the exhibition Christopher Marinos, writes in the exhibition catalogue:
When one looks at at Skylakos compositions today,it is more suitable to speak of congregations rather than assemblages.Morover, the artist never missed an opportunity to repeat that he “paints while playing” and that “all of his work is a game”.Perhaps, this optimistic approach brings him, indeed, closer to the nouveaux realistes, who were often labeled by art critics as “archaeologists of the present” , “polymorphic fetishists” even”tinkers of perpetual transformation”.

VASSILIS SKYLAKOS was no doubt a multifaceted artist. Besides being a painter and a sculptor, he was also an interior decorator, a jewerly designer and an antiques dealer. In contemporary art terms, his diverse artistic pursuits can be associated with various postwar movements and trends, including assemblages, combine painting, environmental art, installations, junk sculpture, kitsch, mobile, neo-dadaism, nouveau realisme, pop art, ready-mades, and site-specific works. Skylakos, however, protesting perhaps against the often sweeping generalizations of art criticism, had made it clear as early as 1973 that he wouldn’taccept any hasty categorizations or labeling: “I belong to no aesthetic order; I belong nowhere.
