PAINTER, DUBUQUE, IOWA

ABOUT

Photo by Tim Olson

PHOTOGRAPHS COURTESY OF TIM OLSON

Andonia Giannakouros is a representational painter working in oil. Her work focuses on the human figure making use of repetition to symbolize disruption, vibration, and to mimic images from her childhood, specifically repeating posters pasted onto walls in Europe. Her work is symbolic of the flattening of time /space /memory combining local and global events with her personal narrative.

Her subjects represent those frozen in moments of fading summers which, having been acted upon by memory, represent a changed reality.

"Memory is the fear of being abandoned. It is the first thing to collapse and the only thing left standing after the ground stops shaking."

Andonia was born in Dubuque, Iowa where she studied Studio Art at Clarke University.
