Somewhat before

Supposing that A. Rodin expresses a great amount of an artist’s truth through his phrases, when he says that the artist "visualizes” his eye inoculated in his heart, reads the depth of the soul’s nature, then Ioanna Kafida’s compositions contribute to their existence as legitimate examples of an honest depiction of nature and of her human inner psychological anxiety. Moments, personal places for escape, a cold inner solitude bring Ioanna Kafida’s equally honest portraits to total freedom, to the inner need of each one of us to meet moments like these. So, the artist, tends to travel, to set the spectator thought of his personal metamorphosis, as this rebounds from her experiential route as an artist. "Everywhere in the field of art, honesty is the only rule”, says A. Rodin and Ioanna Kafida offers this honest artistic expression, either through "Helen’s” cold moments, or through her landscapes which offer the unlimited essence of the unseen or the magical mystery of the earth, of nature.

Through her speculation, Ioanna Kafida manages to show woman, man, in their natural space, in the noise of their own existence, in the face of a "little before”, which manages as a being to act, to exist, to go on living.

As Fernando Pessoa soliloquizes "the world of images I dreamt, which my thought and my life are equally consisted of”, we feel that In a world where modern shelter and attitude brings man face to face with thousands of unbeatable moments, with diffuse anxiety and speculation, every dream, every thought, every moment is necessary to bring him face to face with his inner truth, as this Is reflected in the cold look of a face, as this officiates like the flute relaxing you in the empty field, like the drops carving every hope of yours, in tomorrow, in the freedom of "before”, being or traveling in a shadowy path, in an alley with red roofs, in a endless game with the artist’s brush and colours, in an outstretched and calm way, the way Ioanna offers it to us.
