Traces II

"Thekla Papadopoulou, through her series Traces, shows that for her each portrait
represents a new DNA form, a new self. She completely believes in the notion of the self as an
artificial construct, and, through her work, she reinvents her sitters and her own self. Creating
a hybrid pictorial language for her portraiture, she manages to depict each person on the
intersection of the past, the present and the future. Her portraits connect with the viewers not
through ‘likeness’ but through personal sentiments, contemplation and consciousness. Her
intention is the interpretation of the sitter beyond the image and pictorial representation.
Papadopoulou, through her work, manages to give new impetus to, probably, the most
traditional genre of painting and, to a certain extent, she makes it hers and manages to take us
into her own world." Dimitrios Spyrou, Art Historian
