"The work of the painter Elia Iliadi came as a natural outcome of her intensive study of the human body and its multifaceted ways of expression and movement. Her studies are primarily influenced by the ancient Attic black-figure vessels that date back to the 5th century B.C."

"Elia Iliadi is developing those figures , by adding up plastic qualities that perfectly match the timeless expressions of the human body. By allowing them to dwell in the third dimension, she manages to bridge the gap between painting and sculpture."
Black Box, 2004
"A corollary of this attitude is the opening-up of the human dimension, through this “key” of motion, where the element of texture, acting as a kind of human substance, place the figures outside of their otherwise flattened space."
