Born in Athens,
Chryssa (Vardea) studied
in Paris at the Grande
(1953-1954) and from 1954 to 1955 continued her studies in the
California School of Fine Art, San Francisco. In
1957 she settled in New York, where she had her first one-woman show
Other followed both abroad and in Athens.
Since 1960, however, she
participated in group
exhibitions both in New York and other U.S., European and Latin
American cities. Although more renown for her neon light
(luminist) sculptures, her painting with intense minimalist and
geometric characteristics is equally pioneering. Chryssa (Vardea)
passed away in Athens (2013).
