Born in Athens, Greece, 1959.
Erietta Vordoni studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts and in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts.
She has been awarded a number of prizes including the first prize for painting at the National Museum of Monte Carlo and a prize for painting from the Salon de Montrouge in Paris. One of her most recent exhibitions at the “Athinais” Artistic Center drew over 2,500 persons for the opening night both from Greece and abroad among whom were artists, collectors, business people, art critics, etc.
She has had a number of exhibitions in Greece and mainly abroad, including the Contemporary Art Museum in Nice, the Palazzo del Expositione in Rome and the Queens Museum in New York. Recently Vordoni represented contemporary Greece in Peking in the exhibition “Seeds of the Future”. Some of her works have been acquired by the Athens National Gallery, the Vorres Museum, Museum of Monte Carlo, Museum of Modern Art in Seoul, Korea, and the Dreyfus collection. Currently she is working on a sculptural installation which will stand in a central public square in Athens.
She is a pictorial, figurative artist. Her pictorial representations seek the balance between pursuit of impermanence and passion for perpetuity.
With the human figure pivotal in her work, Vordonis’ paintings are textured through use of Plexiglas and a harmonic weaving of other medium materials such as crystalline paper.
