    George Tzannes's Olive Trees in Field is a 7.5 x 14.5 inches black and white monotype representing a Greek landscape. Olive trees populate the landscape. Tzannes is an American painter of Greek origins. In his twenties he visited Kythera, the Greek island of his father's birth. Since that time, the island has become the major reference of his creativity. The choice of using black and white to represent this landscape gives the mighty hundred-years old olive trees a monumental presence. The viewer is drawn into the timeless, spiritual quality of the Greek landscape. Despite the absence of color, Tzannes' mastery of drawing creates a tangible effect of the Greek light that imbues everything. Tzannes outstanding drawing skills are even more evident in this work for which he used one of the most difficult printmaking techniques, the monotype. The image is draw on glass and then transferred onto a sheet of paper by pressing the two together. This produces a unique print, or monotype.

    Despite the absence of color, the variations of luminosity and brilliance throughout the image are impressive. At a close examination, the viewer will realize a surface covered by hundreds of tiny marks, like pointillism, the neo-impressionist technique developed by Georges Seurat. At a distance, the points become blended in the viewer's eye. This "plein-air" rural landscape, has also references in the work of pre-impressionist painter Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot.

George Tzannes

Greece Born in: 1946

George Tzannes is an American artist of Greek origins. He is best known for his figurative artworks informed by some aspect of the Greek island of Kythera – objects, architecture, landscapes. “My intention is for the viewer to be a participant in the subject of my work and to create their own narrative through a personal response." His main medium is black and white Monotype or chalk and charcoal on paper.

Tzannes studied at the Art Students League in New York and lithography at Pratt. In 1971, he went to Kythera, Greece, for the first time. He was taken by the island's natural beauty and how the people there still lived connected to the land. He has been going back ever since, living part of the year on Kythera and part in New York City, with studios in both places. His work has been exhibited in the United States and in Greece.
