Fairy Tales and Lies for Grown-Ups


Zoumboulakis Galleries present “Fairy Tales and Lies for Grown-Ups” the first solo exhibition by Jenny Kodonidou. Small and large scale works painted with different materials compose her “dream-world”.

This fragmentary world constitutes of contemporary symbols, cartoon heroes, animals, human figures which function as references of the global art history (figures from the early-renaissance to rococo).

The paper where the artist draws works as a tracker of stories and of real or unreal worlds. Painting manages to embellish even the ugliest or more irrational side of reality.

Exhibition duration: 12 January to 4 February 2012
