I created a world of my own from the beginning. I painted a new world, only possibilities, only desires, like a dream with a sun. This work never reaches completion. It has the feeling of dissatisfaction that means youth. So you examine your body and yourself from the beginning. You distinguish the nonsense by recording the world as an act of salvation. I have painted through all that I have lived and in the same way that I have lived it. I have discovered and gathered mineral colours from the ground and I placed them partially on the panel like a primitive act of feeling the world. And everything always restarts like this. I paint to escape madness and this helps me exist.

Painting is like love. Love gives you strength, it crashes your inherent hatred and prejudice. It completes you and your life. Only for the sake of painting can I predict the essentials and surrender my time. And do not forget. Nietzsche said that poets shamelessly lie. Go out to the world and discover life.

MARINA OLYMPIOS: An Everlasting Love
Opening on 1st July, at Almyra Beach in Paphos



We are delighted to announce the opening of the solo exhibition of MARINA OLYMPIOS
"An Everlasting Love", on Saturday 1 July, 7-10 pm at Almyra Hotel in Paphos.

The exhibition brings together 35 paintings and a sculptural work created between 2018-2023
and explores the search for beauty and love, understanding, empathy, and the alternative view of ourselves.

Through fluid and intuitive gestures, Olympios goes beyond representation and attempts to find the
basic, metaphysical truth of life. By using mineral colours that she personally collects from the earth,
she creates new realities on the canvas, “a world becoming” where optimism and innocence are her
guiding forces.

At a time where our conception of life goes through a metamorphosis, the exhibition
"An Everlasting Love" rejects the absolute and invites the viewer to a journey of self-acceptance and
rebirth. The free flow of natural minerals and iridescent colours on the canvas transcend the viewer to abstract landscapes reminiscent of the sea, the sky and the universe while maintaining a type of energy which comes from the artist's broad conceptions of life but also, from nature itself.

Opening: Saturday, 1 July, 7-10 pm

Duration: 1-21 July 2023

Opening Hours: Monday 3-7 pm, Tuesday-Sunday:10 am – 2 pm & 3 - 7pm

Address: Almyra Hotel, 12 Poseidonos Avenue, 8042 Paphos
