Greek artist Vasilis Zografos' new paintings reveal the medium's enduring relevance by examining the tension between memorialization and design, commemoration and utility, reflection and affordance, in a series of oils on paper that draw upon an archaeological rather than a Modernist tradition.

Surpassing stale assertions of painting's demise, Thessaloniki-based artist Vasilis Zografos demonstrates the medium's contemporary relevance through a series of studies on the tension between memorialization and design, commemoration and utility, reflection and affordance. His works jump the track from a Modernist to an archaeological tradition, trading in the medium's auratic mastery for the unfinished virtuality of plaster casts, archival reproductions and mediated displays, left to surreptitiously collect, in the painter's studio, the material gravitas of imprints, patina and dust.
