“Summer Cinema Theatre” (1996) is an indicative example of the artistic practice of Christos Petridis (1958-2013). The work refers to a dreamlike and fairy world. The almost surreal scene depicts a lyrical path in the fantastic done in a playful manner. The use of different materials such as oil, acrylic, spray, as well as the metal structures highlight the special texture of the surfaces and the atmosphere of the scene.
