Following the example of his other Greek colleagues, as [Epameinondas] [Thomopoylos], Vassilios [Ithakisios] and Loukas [Geralis], [Gioldasis] turn his look in the simple farmer and his daily labour. On the other hand, work as "[Kapnochorafo]", where two microscopic human figures gather tobacco in the means of immense Thessalian plain, reflects certainly personal memories of what painter o as child worked many years in the fields. And here is observed the acquaintance in [Gioldasi] attribution of landscape, with the almost geometric composition, the cold tones and the [genikeytiki] attribution of forms. As characteristically it writes Light [Bogiatzis] in his study for the painter in 1976: "The labour is implied with the tying of farmer with his ground, with the merciless that "[koyloyriasma]" and "his diploma" in the lines of his field. This [sfichtagkaliasma] of person and ground takes symbolic dimensions, extends and testifies the [proaionia] human fight".
