Note for “Glass Menagerie” exhibition catalog • Genesis gallery ‒ 2012

…his Glass Menagerie borrows its name from Tennessee Williams’ introverted theatrical poem: Marios Voutsinas now establishes glass houses and greenhouses, glass staircases and articulated numbering measures, glass swords and manuals, glass tiaras and oversize rings, precious necklaces and floating mobiles of unbearable lightness…

…arrangement of his space and the impeccable ergonomics of his rooms make up the strongest asset of his work. For the first time I admired this ability, at his 55 sq.m. island home in the Hora of Astypalaia, where different corners…

Note for art book "Marios Voutsinas" • GEMA Publications ‒ 2004

…from the bow of the boat, I contemplated their flash, like diamonds, in a sort of double vision. Would that the seas of the entire globe go still for an instant, reflecting the celestial glory back onto itself, as in one large spheroid mirror. The landmasses…

Note for art book "Marios Voutsinas" • GEMA Publications ‒ 2004

…the colour white, the light and the silver, that glows and dominates all periods, are Marios Voutsinas’ inspiration and creation. His works, even when combined with dull material, gather their light from crystals, Paris porcelain and silver. His early small bronze pieces…

…Mario, my driving companion and guide. His mannish hands taught me to artfully unravel womanly wax laces before turning to solid silver, shell tender almonds, reword hidden codes of papyrus palimpsests, his callous sense of humour showed me how to grieve a passing friend while dancing under the rain…

…sparsity of the jewels found at the Akrotiri site in Thira, install visions of fleeing residents collecting their valuables and boarding the vessels. In frescoes though, young women are intricately adorned with lavish pieces of jewelry. Bygone are the centuries…

Note for "Baroquxysm" exhibition brochure • EKFRASSI gallery ‒ 2000

…therefore doubt is phrased as follows: What is that which I see and how does it function? As a work of art or as an object of usage? Certainly, the first attribute – many would assert – refutes the second, otherwise limits should be determined, something very difficult not only theoretically but also from a practical point of view. Therefore…

Lila de Chaves • Ethnologist

Note for "Patchwork of Dreams" exhibition "1996 Calendar" • LOLA NIKOLAOU gallery ‒ 1995

…variety and affluence of material seem to help aim the target, as works magnetise, dominate and give out the feeling and the deep desire not only to look at them, but touch them as well, while referring to metaphysical research and questioning. How could it be otherwise…

Note for “antiKIMENA” exhibition catalog • F gallery ‒ 1985

…his work could be sculpture, as it presents an inherent micrographic conception of form, as well as the impulse to redefine itself on a larger scale. Flowers and leaves, snakes and hearts, masks, robes and limbs interlace in his compositions, using…
