NEW ORDER

At the exhibition "New Order", the painter suggests a series of dramatic portraits that would freeze the phenomenon of violence upon the canvas. A violence that is coldly depicted in the faces of the twenty soldiers. A promise of Death has been given to all the "heroes", and thus the familiar tender effect that leads Tsakountis' paintings to some degree has been left aside, to favor a Bacon-like hardness that distorts and empties the faces. The artist, through his personal style that spreads to a broader aesthetic vision and own unique gothic and timeless world, emphasizes that we all alternate between the role of aggressor and victim; that violence is carried within us; that we cannot escape the libido; that it is not the world that is divided between Good and Evil, it is the very soul of every man.
