About Kika Coles
Kika Coles (maiden name Taliadorou). I am a Greek - Cypriot fine artist and educator that lived and worked most of my life in the UK and recently repatriated back to my birth place. Through my art I am exploring human emotional / physical constrains and the feelings that result from them, of entrapment, vulnerability, and rigidness versus liberation. I am looking closer through an anthropological lens, seeking to explore how people interact with and for each other and the way their characters become part of a collective emotional reality. My intention through my work is to raise awareness that there are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect. I am interested in the technical processes behind the visual effects. The media and processes I use are chosen to portray human inhibitions versus a liberated frame of mind.
In my body you search the mountain for the sun buried in its forest. In your body I search for the boat adrift in the middle of the night.
