Essence of the Hellenic, inspired by the elements, Lisa's Sotilis art is a powerful allegory of the fusion of birth and separation, expressed as a never-ending metamorphoses.
Giorgio's de Chirico youngest and most trusted assistant, as she was the only one authorized by the big Master of the Metaphysical art movement to retouch his waxes before casting, Lisa's international debut took place in the Berlin Museum, where the 16 years old artist was presented by the renowned professor Jannasch, as an enfant prodige. In that occasion Lisa met Alexander Iolas, the world leading art dealer, who immediately offered her an exclusive contract and presented her to all his top galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Madrid, Geneva, Athens and Rome, and placed her among “the big ones” of the last century: Andy Warhol, Rene Magritte, Salvator Dali, de Chirico, Tingely, Matta and others.
Alexander Iolas said: in every country you find very few special painters and sculptors, but Lisa is unique and ubiquitous...the One and Only... .
Lisa Sotilis has chosen the route of Gauguin or of Rimbaud, their oblique line towards the arboreal geological pages still living in the parallels of the sun. But her journey is not an attempt to find an Eden once more, it is a garden of Hesperides never lost.
