In Stylianos Schicho*s works the spectator is encouraged to question his viewpoints, to change his perspective or look at himself differently. Stylianos Schicho is always concerned with observation, communication and interaction. These take place between motif and recipient, but they also metaphorically stand for society and its structures. On large-sized canvases Schicho skillfully presents the balancing act between proximity and distance, between intimacy and isolation. The artist merges form and content bu using numerous metaphors and thus, he refers to the discrepancy between individual and collective. The pictorial constructions are painted critique of society bringing up sociological processes and their effects as subjects for discussion.
