Completing the circle by Judith Constantinou

Water-colour artist Judith Constantinou’s next solo exhibition is titled “Completing the Circle” and draws from her 40 years of memories and experiences. Born in Surrey and educated at Croydon High School, Judith went on to study at the Bartlett School of Architecture, London University where she graduated with Distinction. Her architect father was a major influence in the development of her artistic life and she recalls being taken with her friend to numerous galleries and exhibitions – always a source of colour and excitement.

Her mornings are now devoted to her own painting, but each weekday afternoon, her Tala studio is filled with students who attend her two hour class. She considers a formal education essential, explaining “If you understand the technical aspects of what you are doing, you are more likely to be able to express yourself fully and easily.” While informal, there is a structure to each class and Judith has developed certain projects to assist in the learning process.

The exhibition will take place at the Kyklos Gallery, Kato Paphos and will be opened on September 26 at 7pm by well known chef/author Maurice Hassall, who recently released his second book “A Cook’s Tour of England” illustrated by Judith. The exhibition includes over 120 new water colour paintings of island life encompassing traditional Cypriot architecture and ancient buildings, churches, religious figures, town and village life as well as streams, coastlines and still life. The collection reflects experiences of her long painting career with the exhibition running from September 26 to October 10. Gallery hours: 10am – 1pm and 4pm – 7pm weekdays Saturday and Sunday 10am – 1pm. Tel. 26-936681
