That is why without the help of light colour remains invisible. Its being colour at all means precisely its having in it the power to set in movement what is already actually transparent, and, as we have seen, the actuality of what is transparent is just light.

Aristotele, On the Soul


διὸ καὶ οὐχ ὁρᾶται ἄνευ φωτός· τοῦτο γὰρ ἦν αὐτῷ τὸ χρώματι εἶναι, τὸ κινητικῷ εἶναι τοῦ κατ' ἐνέργειαν διαφανοῦς), ἡ δ' ἐντελέχεια τοῦ διαφανοῦς φῶς ἐστιν.

Αριστοτέλης, Περί Ψυχής

Reviews

  • Καθηγητής Σωτήριος Μίχου

    Είδα για πρώτη φορά το έργο του Αλέξανδρου Βάλβη πριν από πέντε χρόνια, µε αφορµή µια κοινή µας έκθεση.

  • Καθηγητής Στέλιος Λυδάκης

    Ο ζωγράφος Αλέξανδρος Βάλβης αντιλαµβάνεται τον κόσµο ως συνεχή και ακατάπαυστη ροή, φτάνοντας στο αυτόνόητο συµπέρασµα, ότι «έν αρχή ήν η κίνηση».

  • Professor Stelios Lidakis

    The painter Alexandros Valvis sees the world as a continuous, eternal flow, coming to the obvious conclusion that ‘in the beginning was the motion’, the primary element of Creation.

  • Professor Sotirios Michou

    I first saw the work of Alexandros Valvis with the opportunity of an exhibition in which we both participated.
