"Painting is an attempt, to approach God." Thengis Rioni Each thing ist followed by its counterpart like a shadow in the aftermath of light - Thengis Rioni's imagery between exotic worlds and philosophy The Georgian painter and sculptor Thengis chose the name of the river Rioni - which runs through his hometown - as a surname. Rioni is more than just a name, it is a parable. Heraklit said that a man cannot step into the same river twice. The moment 's clearness is blurred by the running water just as it is by passing time. Thengis' pictures have an effect on the viewer like the river which gradually passes over and disolves the stone. Calm composure dominates these pictures. lt soothes the senses and makes the spirit pensive.
