Through vigorous use of circular patterning, the work of Melbourne based painter John Aslanidis creates a symphony of visual stimuli. His paintings exude a kinetic resonance and hover tensely between sound and vision.
An accomplished musician as well as painter, Aslanidis? paintings reverberate inwards from the outer edge of the canvas and echo throbbing sonic vibrations through their use of brash, conflicting colours and close-knit lines. The resulting works are reminiscent of 1960?s Op Art.
Aslanidis exhibits regularly in New York, Sydney and Melbourne. Most recently his work appeared in Disorientate at the Plimsoll Gallery in Hobart and solo exhibitions Sonic Wrestling at Fox Galleries, Brisbane and Sonic Fragments at Criterion Gallery, Hobart.
