George Raftopoulos plays with the notion of the migrant identity or absence thereof. His works are odd and he knows it. But being an oddity is all part of the migrant experience, it is a part of everyone’s humanity. These paintings converse with the past, a real foreign country. They don’t tell stories as much as they reacquaint us with people who should never be forgotten. True, they might startle you if you’ve stumbled in looking for landscapes, but these works are also about seeing a different vista.
|When:||Opens Friday 13 May at 6PM. Until Sunday 29 May|
|Where:||Nishi Gallery, 17 Kendall Lane, NewActon|
