All along people have been looking at the moving or still waters in amazement. The relentless game of mirroring has been inspiring those who are involved in poetry, painting and music and are challenged to bestow the rapid changes a slight pictorial shape. George Saltaferos falls into the circle of the artists who have inner pursuits and experiment. The subject of the sea has been accompanying and formulating the artist since his early youth. An Aegean Sea ‘child’, he has experienced and gone deeply into the multi-faceted aspects of presentation of the saline element capturing its whole essence. Baudelaire’s poem “The Man and the Sea” is portrayed in a Saltaferian way – he picked a line as the leitmotiv for his exhibition:

“the sea is your mirror.”

15


Š www.saltaferosgiorgos.com

From 2011 up to the present time a great artistic group has been created, in which Saltaferos has accumulated his observations, his emotions, memories and fantasies on poetic painting. He leads the observer to his works of art very closely onto the water. He gives the impression that someone is sitting on a boat and is approaching banks with hidden secrets, a feeling of arrival rather than one of departure. The observer has his back turned to the horizon, which is perceptible though not directly visible. Saltaferos intentionally exempts the horizon of nostalgia. This omission, nevertheless, boosts its presence in the exhibition.

“Free man, you’ll always love the sea - for this, That it’s a mirror, where you see your soul In its eternal waves that chafe and roll; Nor is your soul less bitter an abyss.” -Charles Baudelaire, 1821 - 1867 Beginning of 14th poem "Man and the Sea" from "Flowers of Evil" (published in 1857)


© www.saltaferosgiorgos.com The complete works of the “Mirrors of the Sea” theme is saturated with a profound basis of red, black and blue, engulfing thus the images into one unity. The dark spots on the water lead from the dimly-lit surface to the mysterious, dark bottoms of the sea. The warm red tones around act as blazing coasts. These works of art which at first sight are taken to be water images, create streams of thought associated with the four elements, water, earth, wind and fire. They can be interpreted and experienced synesthetically. The presence of smell, taste and sound of the water reinforces and alters the optical impression.

19


© www.saltaferosgiorgos.com

Since his student years at the University of Bern, Saltaferos has made a reputation for the flawless technique of his composition. What is more, in this group stands out the persuasive streak of the stable and rich in variations imagistic architecture, with which he confronts the vital element of the water. In the WORK No 1(p.18) he cites in a daring and impressive way the clear blue mirroring of the sky on the dead right corner, achieving thus a creative stimulus on the painting. Also in the painting WORK No 4 (p.26), which reminds us of the scenery at the banks landscape of the “Island of the Dead” in Brooklyn, he proves his mastery in composition.

“Soul of man, How like to the water! Fate of man, How like to the wind! -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749 - 1832 1779 from “Song of the spirits over the waters”


Š www.saltaferosgiorgos.com The images boost activity. They force the observer to move in front of the painting, to distantiate himself, to approach. For proximity and distantiation can reveal totally opposite perceptual values of a totally similar work of art. At close distance, for example, one can identify the minute calligraphies of the paintbrush, which coincide with the lavish rhythms of a surface from a distance.

23


Š www.saltaferosgiorgos.com

Water, sea and waves are transformed into a life metaphor. Both Goethe and Baudelaire have associated water with human destiny, a fact which many people perceive of in a similar way. Saltaferos achieves this combination. His works of art are contemporary water depictions, through which the observer can find his/her own internal pictorial worlds. His paintings invite us to paint further with the thought, to be transported by the slow motion to the powerful vibration outside the painting domain. In this respect the paintings can be also understood as a plea for traveling into thought and against stagnation. Accordingly, they transfer their energy to the observer.
