‘Athena’ is a painting by the Portuguese artist Francisco Santos. It depicts and abstract composition consisting of coloured lines, distributed horizontally. The lines, yet clearly distinguishable, gently flow over into each other, providing a complementary quality towards each other that results in a well balanced composition.
“This style is a turning point in my most recent work. Contrasts, calm harmony, balance and tonal beauty characterize these ‘lines paintings’. The bright palette ranges from strong, full colours tones, to soft watercolour values and finds its peak with an almost “black and white” intensity, applied in parallel on the canvas.” — Francisco Santos
‘Athena’ is created with acrylic paint on canvas. It measures 110 x 200 and ships rolled in a tube.
