Lida Kazantzakis – The mysterious texture of the world

When I first saw Denny Theocharakis’s undergraduate thesis in 2011 at the Athens School of Fine Arts, I felt as if I was moving to a world as remote as the one I had encountered in the caves – the first Christians’ shelters in Anatolia. The artworks exhibited by Denny Theocharakis summarize all these motifs and such kinship images. They prove, as Oscar Wilde would say, that the real mystery of the world lies not in the invisible, but in the visible. And they depict by the means of plastic expression the primordial attempt of man to conceive it even if he cannot understand it.
