Katerina Tsamis paints us a beautiful world

by Shuli Sapir-Nevo Photo and Motto

Katerina,

Let me walk among

Your Turquoise hills

Between the candy houses

That spread their bright beauty

Through

A child’s eyes

Creating a world

Where the moon

Is above my bedroom

And the sun

Defeats the clouds.

My friend Katerina Tsamis is an amazing person.

Big clever eyes full of soul, optimism and humor.

And she is an amazing artist!

I look at her pictures, many of them are so naive and pure.

The houses, the colors on the hills, the green green trees.

Maybe a world you want it to be.

I bet that only good people could live there.

There are no problems, no fights, no tears.

There- where it only exists in dreams .

It reminds me the touching Greek song

“ap to aeropleno”- from the airplane of Kwstas Xatzis

 

“…When you’re looking from high above

the earth is a painting,

and you took it seriously

kind of this earth you took much to heart…”

“Όταν κοιτάς από ψηλά

μοιάζει η γη με ζωγραφιά

και συ την πήρες σοβαρά

και συ την πήρες σοβαρά…”

And looking at Katerina’s paintings is like

looking from up above, from an airplane.

There are no troubles ,all the difficulties disappear,

all the things look so small, like toys.

When you are up high, they are all so far away from you.

Not so far from the bright fancy lights of Ermou street in Athens,

There is a neighborhood where the lights there forgot the people,

Where life is difficult and people have to fight for bread.

There in a cosy small house lives Katerina and paints those

magnificent paintings.

Only the people/ children in some of Katerina’s paintings are

serious and sad a bit,

maybe because they can’t reach this dreamy world,

that Katerina paints in her other paintings.

We are sitting in her house- house of an artist,

where the colors, the brushes and the tubes are living happily and free

in every corner.

House, which is like a bird’s nest.

there is a pleasant warm scent – mix of smells of furnitures,

painting colors and herbs.

In the Corridor there is an anchored ship with holiday lights.

The ship is the Greek traditional Christmas decoration

and this one is hand made by a famous Greek artist.

There is a small beautiful Turkish wall carpet- hand made.

It is lying here on the floor, among the other little carpets.

Katerina’s father bought it and though it is very old,

the wine colors and the images are still so fresh.

We are talking over café , and I am fascinating by Katerina,

by her courage and approach to life.

By her eyes that see every thing and turn the difficult

and the sadness into hope and positive energy.

And I am fascinating by her generosity, by her big heart

and kindness.

IF you ever come to Athens and you want a painting

that will be like a smile in your home/ office, call Katerina

and buy one of her art.

And don’t miss the chance of having a café and a talk with her.

And since I am a dreamer, and I live many times in a world of fantasy, my home has already few of Katerina beautiful paintings.

I have those sweet candy houses, I have a sun and moon in skies that collected all the blues of the day and the night.

I have those young forever- trees and the turquoise hills.

Now, pame mazi- come with me, look at Katerina paintings,

liston to the “ao to aeropleno” song, have your café

and fill your eyes and soul with a new dream.

 

” … Oh my beloved one don’t you cry

should you want we’ll go up high

to look at this earth from the moon that

its self is nothing more then a “moon”.

…”

“Αγαπημένη μου, μην κλαις

πάμε μαζί ψηλά, αν θες

να δεις τη γη απ’ τη σελήνη

ένα φεγγάρι είναι και κείνη…”
