Among the most important sculptresses in the contemporary art world, Sophia Vari was born in 1940 in Attica (Greece), in a village named Vari, to a Greek father and a Hungarian mother. Sophia Vari’s work, in addition to being refined and elegant, presents itself with a synthetic compendium. Its poetic sense does not dissimulate a cultural and visual unity with historical Avant-garde – neither in its form of reference and tribute – but is a true re-elaboration of a model that still today in the third millennium functions. Sophia Vari tells us something very important: today Avant-garde, or that which remains of it, has become stylish. Anything else has been lost along the way.
