Aslanidis paintings are characterized by a special expressiveness and powerful formal language. The pictures show dissolving figures and faces in a fluid space which immediately draw the viewer into their spell. The artist looks deep into the soul of the masks bearing motifs with human or animal characteristics.
Power and dynamism faces fragility and resolution. Aslanidis focuses entirely on painting itself without grand gestures and complicated themes. The results are images with a dimension of their own, expressive, dark, charged with tension, multi-faceted and enveloped in secrets. His figures cannot do without space, both change and transform, both remain in motion, dissolve and merge into one another.
