Articles with Thalia Gatzouli


A meditation on the concept of matter and life

“My artistic narrative is influenced by my experience and involvement, over the years, in the scientific study and investigation of cell structure and function……….The physical and chemical properties of atoms and molecules, the composition of matter, the energy, matter’s wear and degradation — these are the raw materials I use to compose a personal artistic landscape.”

Thalia Gatzouli currently lives and works as an artist and a Nuclear physician in Thessaloniki, Greece.
