Niki Katiki is a self taught artist who, over the years, created her unique works through the spectacular use of colors, contrasts and shadows, the playful use of diagonals creating a solid sense of perspective and the multiple levels of volume and texture. Lately, she started altering her style: In fact she started creating semi-abstract paintings in which the theme is recognizable as a whole even if one cannot identify distinctive details. Expressionistic landscape, seascape, cityscape, abstract and modern paintings. Different themes depicted in various versions create series of works. But regardless of the series each work belongs to, there are features and characteristics common to every painting, creating her unique personal style. The balance between light and shadow, cold and warm colors, the volumetric structure of the composition and the textured surface are some of the typical characteristics of her work, that create the impressive and powerful paintings. Her most recent works are expressionist acrylic boat paintings, where her love for the sea, the sky and freedom is everywhere. It doesn’t matter if her paintings are dark, heavy and dramatic or vivid, playful and happy, the sense of freedom is always there. And although there is a complete lack of life and you can never identify the horizon in her seascapes any more, her works are serene, calm, vivid and give the viewer a positive and playful feeling. Most of all, this atmosphere is provoked by the use of light. Indeed a dramatic, theatrically staged, inner light becomes the centerpiece, the focus of each and every work of her last period. A mystic contrast between weightless boats and heavy reflections, light and dark areas of the painting create a sense of inner ease and a serenity that is overwhelming. Statement
