— Painting is an art, and Art as a whole is not a vain creation of objects lost in the void, but a power that has a purpose and that is to serve the development and refinement of the human soul.
Vassily Kandinsky, On the Spiritual In Art, 1912
A one month summer exhibition presented in the island of Paros (Greece). Press coverage, photos and interviews : Art & Design magazine.

The healing power of art has been well known by diverse cultures throughout history.
In recent times, theories have been developed describing the curative effect of colour and form on the psyche. Art therapy has demonstrated that viewers benefit from the contemplation of art by being receptive to the energies that color release. As Kandinsky famously proclaimed, “Color provokes a psychic vibration. Color hides a power still unknown but real, which acts on every part of the human body.” Thus, a work of art necessarily conveys the quality of the energy and inner vibration of the artist.
