Artist, Thalia Kerouli, presents at Apothiki his solo exhibition titled "Xartografies". Paper becomes color that Thalia uses to create her compositions as she develops the technique of "Xartografia", through which she presents us her study of large scale portraits. Portraits made of recycled paper compose the forms that look like "interior portraits".
Like geographic maps that analytically represent the paths, the morphology of a landscape, and so the portrait tells us the psycho-synthesis of the person and his/her individual identity.
