Greek Artist Denny Theocharakis to Display Works at CLIO Art Fair New York

September 6, 2022

NEW YORK – The painter and photographer Denny Theocharakis is presenting her work at CLIO Art Fair 2022 in New York.

After her latest successful, painting and photography, solo exhibition “the silence of the glance” that took place in Athens, Greece in 2021 and her recent participation at Start Art Fair Seoul 2022, Denny Theocharakis crosses the Atlantic to present her work at the CLIO Art Fair NEW YORK.

CLIO Art Fair NEW YORK is a significant meeting point of independent artists from around the globe, organized for the 13th consecutive year in New York.  It is a lively art benchmark where collectors, critics and art lovers fruitfully interact with edgy contemporary, emerging and mid-career, independent artists, engraving new artistic paths.

Denny Theocharakis participates with her personal distinct, uncompromising and eloquent script. Inspired from her travels in various places around the world, she is transformed into a contemporary intercultural wanderer, a creative channel of interaction between the world and ourselves. Her multi-dimensional compositions are enriched with forms, figures and symbols, which are depicting stimuli of everyday life around the world, mixing realistic with fantastical scenes. Her visual narratives are transfigured into design confrontations expressing the agony’s cries of the humanity, which is shocked by the big social events of today, the war, the pandemic.

One of her paintings has been selected from CLIO Art Fair to be featured in the special section “Maybe I am Your Mother. Who is generating Who?” curated by Asya Rotella, dedicated to highlight the anguished, almost antagonistic relationship of the modern human being with technology.

As Asya Rotella mentions “For generations we have been raised being convinced of the fact that the human being is at the core of history, but is it actually so? If it is, for how much longer will it be this way? Is it reasonable to suggest that it is technology which is at the core of history, with the human being as its mere extension and appendix?”

CLIO Art Fair NEW YORK opening will take place on September 8, 2022 while the exhibition will be open for the public up to September 11, 2022.

BIO

Denny Theocharakis loves traveling around the world and using her camera to capture moments of everyday life at her destinations. Even though each country has its own culture and way of living, she never ceases to be amazed by how similar at their core these seemingly foreign and distant cultures are.

Her travel experiences form the basis of her artwork. Using the memories and feelings from her observations of the different aspects of daily life in the world, she creates in her artwork a new, seemingly complicated, reality. A reality that like in real life, is full of different distinct paths leading to different destinations. Her art creations are constantly changing, evolving, as she refuses to be associated with a particular school of thought or style. Her style is uncompromising, adventurous. She is in constant search for new ways to express herself using different materials, textures, techniques.

Denny Theocharakis lives and works in Athens, Greece. She has presented her work in solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad, while many of her artworks are part of private collections. One of her paintings belongs to the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Greece.

She holds an MBA from NYU Stern Business School, a BA in Economics from National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and she is a graduate of Athens School of Fine Arts.
