Petros Chrisostomou

Combining sculpture and photography, the real and the surreal, Petros Chrisostomou produces painstakingly constructed photographs, whose seductive, strange still life subjects call into question the veracity of the photographic image. Chrisostomou uses such unremarkable but symbolically loaded items as eggs, wigs, highheeled shoes, and ballpoint pens, sourced from neighborhood stores. He then arranges these items into carefully considered sculptural forms, set into models he builds of architectural interiors ranging from scrappy to sumptuous. In what Chrisostomou describes as a “perversion of scale,” the objects dominate these interiors, reaching from floor to ceiling, in images that appear equally realistic and impossible.
