Critics about Helene Pavlopoulou's Work
"Helene Pavlopoulou is a distinctive young Greek artist, whose work combines qualities that appear to be antithetical, such as sensitivity, starkness, lyricism and vigour: qualities whose osmotic force exceeds the stereotypical approaches of “feminine expressivity"
