Panagiotis Pougaridis’s ships are made of brass and copper.

"Living in Thessaloniki, a city by the sea, the eye constantly trains upon the water, the port, the ships, I noticed their volume standing still, clearly outlined in the sunlight or fading away indescernible through the fog. A vision recurring and at the same time diverse and captivating.
Loaded with these images, I had experienced, I have been creating big or smaller boats, conjectural objects, through wich I have been trying to render all these diverse visions and to relieve their monotony, depicting them some times almost in their real proportions and some other as if they were deformed by the memory of the perspective viewpoint of their imposing volume.
My eye travels from the water – line to the deck, from stem to stern, focuses in the detail of their rig, identifying their sculptural dimension, drawing near the multiple layers of the oil paint, the rust, the wear caused by the sea and the desertion, discovering the conjectural value of the incidental then the visual experience is transferred to the object wishing to overcome its regular form and the chromatic standards.
In the end I hold an object, the repetition of which does not bore me ; not with standing, it inflames me to start again, looking for a new ways and new variations to render it."
