Summary

Alexander Reichardt is an artist and designer whose unique creativity reflects his life-long relationship with the sea and especially of the Aegean. He has travelled widely throughout the Mediterranean world and has lived for many years on the Cycladic island of Naxos where, with his wife, the celebrated potter Katharina Bolesch, he has established the internationally acclaimed Fish & Olive gallery in the ancient village of Halki.

Reichardt’s compelling imagery is based strongly on the motif of the fish as the all-encompassing symbol of the sea and its fruitfulness. His exquisite fish designs feature on the ceramic and porcelain work of Bolesch and are incorporated into artefacts of luminous beauty that include silver jewellery, Naxian marble, brass, wood, and lithographs.

From his earliest years, Alexander Reichardt has engaged with the sea in every way and most intensely through scuba diving, a pursuit that has invested his art with its unique aesthetic. Such close engagement has also imbued him with a profound sympathy for the marine environment in general and his engagement with marine conservation is expressed through his close association with the Cousteau Divers.

Thus, respect for the sea, for its beauty and its danger, defines Alexander Reichardt’s aesthetic and ethical view of the marine environment. He believes that the rich diversity of the Mediterranean that has captivated him from his earliest years has been greatly diminished in his own lifetime. His artistry and his beautiful images are a celebration of that diversity and reflect also a powerful plea for its recovery and restoration.

Admission to the gallery is free as you do not need to enter the aquarium.
