It is impossible not to think of the old-school computer game "Brick" when viewing Angelo Plessas' Portrait 3. As if one were forever failing to score even a single point, we see one ball after another falling off three hovering platforms and then out of the image frame.
Plessas' work is renowned to play within the electronic realm of the hyper-real, and so does his aesthetic. Simple iconic images and forms, some reminding of creatures or emblems, others are mere abstract shapes and repetitions, dominates Plessas' virtual and real productions.
Angelo Plessas lives and works in Athens but has ongoing projects and artist collaborations all over the world.
