Side of Old Boat
“The works of Sotiris Sorogas are plagued and dominated by wear and tear. Nothing escapes the time and its destructive power.
The catastrophe of life is manifested through the decomposition of objects: ruins, broken statues, burnt pictures, broken boats. Behind the inanimate matter is the journey of human life, beginning and ending the sea, as a primordial and decisive element. Like the poet Karyotakis, the painter Sorogas sees “the pain of things and of mankind” united and intertwined in a common constituent, that is, common fate. ”
