The art historian Annita Patsouraki mentions: Thomas Tournavitis’s works are portraits of people bathed in the sunlight and the sense of motion which are infinitely present. The idea of continual change, law of the universe, along with the unity of contradictions in space, reveal a personal colour palette exposed at the Greek sunlight. The work of Thomas Tournavitis is directed by theoretical and technical education inspired by ideals and diachronical moral values. He is following the steps and signs of faith, in what he taught, he summarises the compositions with honoured facts and faces, social incidents, events and characters in an ecumenical atmosphere . The descriptive austerity of his work revives images of tradition and boldly reflects a new Hellenistic writing… With reflection, self-knowledge and intense internal search, the painter guides his childhood memory-experiences for the regeneration and creation of a new school.
Thomas Tournavitis writes: We need new eyes in order to get closer and read my work. Selected orbits and points of my writing, compose portraits that refuse the static. Faces in a face, moments in a moment, places in a place. A Modern Greek viewpoint about the portrait in a world of motion.
