Working predominantly in sculpture, Basil Papoutsidis utilizes an architectural language and specific material range to inform a practice of modernist abstraction.

Drawing from figures such as Anthony Caro and Tony Smith, Papoutsidis cross-references the principles of this school of formalist abstraction, with a personal interest with the masculine identity. Using various aspects, in particular mid-century, custom automotive design, he aims to construct a comment on the masculine condition, as it exists within popular culture.
