A few words about the exhibition:

The A. G. Leventis Gallery is continuing its research into the history of modern Cypriot art with the temporary exhibition dedicated to the pioneering Cypriot artist Adamantios Diamantis (1900-1994). The exhibition Agonies – Diamantis focuses on 'Agonies', the important series of works from Diamantis’ oeuvre, exhibited together for the first time in their entirety.

The exhibition features the eight emblematic paintings Diamantis created from 1963 to 1977. It also includes Woman with Outstretched Arms, the final complete work by the artist, made in 1983-1984 it is considered to be the conclusion of the 'Agonies' series, as well as of Diamantis’ artistic journey, which lasted almost the entire 20th century. In contrast to his monumental work The World of Cyprus, in ‘Agonies’the protagonist is the woman in the role of the mother.

Τhe 'Agonies' series explores the artist’s relationship with all the important events that marked his homeland in the 20th century. In the political situation taking shape in Cyprus, Diamantis could see dangers lurking which he discerned would not allow a lasting peace on the island. With his life and art always having been irrevocably bound with the world and destiny of his native land, he felt a great anxiety which was constantly growing and which, inevitably, would be reflected – as an outlet or as an exorcism – in his work, especially in the ‘Agonies’ series. To Diamantis’ agonising about the future of his homeland and about his disconnection from his world of inspiration, other personal anxieties, both existential and artistic, were added.
