Because, behind the flat-faced icons on Fallina’s canvas, this statement is precisely the manifestation: the art in every appearance of it from the early years of mankind was and is initially an instinct, an inbred inner guide to the survival of the soul, its liberation, her. It is the need to deposit pure emotion before it passes through the neurons in the brain and rationalizes. And if he does more than anything else, Fallina with his painting is through the stories of the primitive people that portrays to attribute that pure sentiment. Take us to the caves of our ancestors and feel the artistic creation as a great need in a world without writing, very likely without language.
A series of ancestral stories so simple in their visual message, but so compelling on their essence and emotional content. A series of ancestral stories synonymous with the poetic mood of the human soul and its universality.”

“Στον ισόγειο χώρο του Μουσείου Τσιτσάνη παρουσιάζεται η εικαστική συνύπαρξη των ζωγράφων Αργυρούλας Σίμου και Στέφανου Φωλίνα . Οι δύο καλλιτέχνες πραγματοποιούν έναν εικαστικό διάλογο με θέμα τον άνθρωπο και τα συναισθήματα. Με διαφορετικά υλικά ο καθένας και με διαφορετική τεχνική και ύφος επιθυμούν να εκφράσουν μέσω της ζωγραφικής συνύπαρξης το μεγαλείο των ανθρώπινων συναισθημάτων”.
