BASIL PAPOUTSIDIS

0.00

 Interested in the sculptural and post-painterly contexts of formalist abstraction, Basil Papoutsidis utilises the aesthetic course of material behaviours to explore and construct identity, informed by genres such as masculine industrialism.  An investigation into the modernist idea of object as subject matter, informs intuitive reactions within Papoutsidis’ practice, through rigorous formal explorations and a discourse of colour and gesture. Material deconstruction, using a specific hierarchical structure, references the speed and strength of the machine and the application of custom automotive culture, drawing from the muscular volumes of Anthony Caro and Tony Smith. Basil Papoutsidis graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts with a BFA in 2014 and has held several solo exhibits, including Livery at Nicholas Projects, Melbourne and Auto Salon at Kings Artist-run, Melbourne.
