“A Window to the Aegean”, acrylic on canvas, Stamatis Skliris, April 7, 2020
Fr. Stamatis painted the painting (which continues the series with Aegean landscapes, which move him very much anyway) wondering how difficult it is for everyone to stay indoors. He proposes aesthetic solutions that open the visual horizon of any person who remains confined to four walls of one room. He suggests hanging photos and paintings on the walls with landscapes that offer our eyes wide horizons and pleasant landscapes, which amuse boredom. In fact, the painting that will function figuratively as a psychic window has a painted window, from which we enjoy the landscape of the Aegean island with the chapel, the ancient remains, and the boat and with the girl who treats us all with the desired fresh watermelon. Ontologically, we live at home, but aesthetically we also enjoy holidays in our favorite Aegean. Good endurance and blessed Pascha to everyone! May we all exit our homes, when God allows!

"Lambri", or "How the Orthodox celebrate the Night of the Resurrection", acrylic on canvas, 2019

It is a gladness of soul, a record of the Eucharist's experience, that all these years I thanked my Parish, with all these people of God who came to for the vigil on the Holy Saturday night outside the temple with smiling faces and candles in their hands and celebrating Christ who was THEIR OWN.

"Εxcessive People", acrylic on canvas, Stamatis Skliris, February 2019
Starting with the news about the refugees whom we consider to be "excesses", unnecessarily (since there is no place for them,) Fr. Stamatis began a dark canvas painting honoring the migrants and as repentance for neglect of their breaking stories. This image of "excessive people" will become even darker over the years to come. On the boat full of migrants in the middle of the sea, Christ is depicted with them because He participates in their martyrdom through his martyric death of the Cross... Those who drown are painted with bright faces floating in the sea and calmly expressing themselves as those who have overcome fear and terror.

Dostoyevsky, acrylic on canvas, 2018

At first, I was thinking of filling the background with thick snow and the hero wearing a thick vest. I rendered the face with a transparent turquoise color, peripherally, and once I saw how the face is shining from the white color of the canvas I changed and left the canvas uncolored. When I saw that the portrait is unfinished, I thought that the cold snow was rendered as if it were inside and not around it.

"A Lady Pianist", acrylic on canvas, Athens, 2016. Fr Stamatis explains the creative desire in young lady pianist. The girl is depicted bending forward, in the moment of creativity, composing a new melody, while her eye "reads" the music, with undivided attention to the sound of piano, and the piano becomes elastic and cyclical… It is an ecstatic expression.

"Walt Disney Music Hall", Acrylic on canvas, June 2013

The main subject of the painting is the music hall. The metal exterior of this architecturally unique building, with its characteristic lines that collide, is offered in pictorial form. Because within this building is the temple of music, we have the anthropomorphism of music as a woman. The building appears as a type of boat within which this woman stands, and which is headed toward us.
 
"Nighttime in Arizona", detail, Acrylic on canvas, Phoenix - Neo Psychiko, July 2013

Night, with a huge moon and a silent starry sky above the landscape of rocks, shrubs, and cacti. A raging white horse in a blue dream runs through the Arizona desert with an upright rider, a mysterious Indian, on its back. Man has caught the animal, and the animal's momentum endangers man's balance. The silent and peaceful presence of the night and of the desert converse with the dynamic relationship between man and animal. And all those depicted are cast with the golden light of the moon.
