loopi collection

The Loopi Collection is a romantic interpretation of linking fingers and the youthful sincerity of a 'pink promise'. Conceived of a 'braided' design of interlocking glass loops uniting a delicate balance of sculptural light art, confident in shape and form, yet quietly sophisticated.

INTRODUCING _ Nikomachi Karakostanoglou

A Narrative on Nature is a collection of striking works in verdant greens and translucent aquamarines. A symbiotic liquidity and gentle effervescence permeates drawings which adopt a spiritualist beauty reminiscent of shards of sunlight penetrating a leafy canopy or deep pool. An ethereal ambience captures the sensorial impact of the elements while organic shapes resonate with the ancient cyclical rhythms of nature. 

Embedded in Nikomachi's drawings and sculptures is a quality that reaches to the human heart and restores hope in the unshakable continuum of the world to which we are all connected. '  Tiffany Jade
