Debra Force Fine Art, Inc. is pleased to present Ethnos/Techne: Theodoros Stamos and Michael Michaeledes.

This exhibition examines the relationship between Theodoros Stamos (1922-1997) and Michael Michaeledes (b. 1927), contemporaries who shared artistic ideologies and inspiration that each uniquely translated to canvas. Spanning the time period between the late 1940s and early 1980s, Ethnos/Techne explores each artist’s direct response to nature and light, transition to a mature style, and shared heritage. In the 1950s, Michaeledes produced intensely saturated washes of pure color, before moving to a sleek, reductive style that was based on geometric formations; Stamos’ work evolved from biomorphic canvases to classic Abstract Expressionism.
