Athos Zacharias

I am involved in computer manipulations of Pop images assembled into collages and painted on canvas. My images are culled from popular media – magazines most commonly – and my paintings have a surreal tone. Still, my subject matter remains rooted in the spatial traditions of modern, abstract painting. Indeed, throughout my career I have had a preoccupation with spatial ambiguity. I would say that this idea – the dynamics of uncertain perception, of positive and negative forms within a restricted depth of space – links my work over the past 40 years.

Hutton & Co., New York; and the Westinghouse Corporation, Pittsburgh.
