Αlexis Vasilikos is a Greek artist based in Athens. His images are incidental, spontaneous, and abrupt, just as he, in his own approach as an artist, prioritizes a creative spontaneity unfettered by conceptual frameworks. Keeping that in mind, we couldn’t help but notice a recurring visual element in his photography- a compulsive fascination with those moments in which human anatomy occupies a primal form, shedding the structural complexities that the body normally inhabits.
Through unanticipated poses, contortions, or enshrouding it with everyday objects (books, clothes, beach towels), the physical form is reduced to a strange mass- a hybrid of human, ornament and physical landscape that for a quick second merges, and is captured on film by its perceiver.
