During her studies she focused her research in one area, which concerned the transformation of pigmentation of an original object. As a natural consequence of this, she created a series of sculptures from oil paints. These sculptures, of two dimensional color, took on an appearance of a third dimension. In other words depth was added to length and width.
More specifically, color consists of a basic way of painting and has been used over the centuries as a means of communication. Even though painting is two dimensional, this does not prevent color creating an illusion of background.
3 Dimensional art is the exclusive prerogative of sculpture. Ms Dimitra Giannakakou-Razelou inspired by color material adds the third dimension in her sculpture creations and so in this ways gives essence to space. For example, an oil-colored tube sculpture takes on the form a protruding mass.
When color is used as a mass, it keeps its clarity. The basic material stays simple and keeps its original form.
The brightness of color gives life to this form of art.
