There is profound liberation in the unpredictable, instinctive nature of simply experiencing the world – alive – away from the strictures of life’s routines and minutiae, social shackles cast aside. It is something that transcends any conscious outlook: to imbibe without limitation; to feel without rationale; to simply be and bear witness.

Exploring identity through painting and digital design, I am fascinated in the way we shape our environment and in the way it shapes us. Drawing from brutalist architecture for its monolithic and imposing characteristics, my aim is to capture a sense of the vast emptiness and isolation that is a key part of our modern world.

Over the years I have developed a style of work involving painted constructions that combine three-dimensional and two-dimensional configurations. I utilise straight lines, hard edges and simplified forms to create an illusion of deep space as well as a feeling of isolation and longing.

Papoulis has a long-held fascination with the water’s edge. Observing how we interact with it, how we use it, what happens there and how the elements can affect it.
