A text for my art-work

It is very difficult to write something about your work in an era when words are superfluous, however I content myself with the following…

The theme in my work is anthropocentric and I draw my inspiration from Nature.

Whatever exists around me, either big or small, I try to render in forms, forms that we meet everywhere, in the rocks by the sea, the pebbles, the mountains, the trees, the clouds and whatever Nature has the courtesy to give away.

We can also confine forms in people’s faces, forms of injustice and exploitation, 
forms of loneliness and fear, forms of what we may refer to as “Misfortunes of the People”. Even the stained by dampness and time walls of an abandoned house can hide, if the beholder should take a closer look, an ocean of forms.

Finally, I would like to add, that my work has been widely influenced by all ancient civilizations, especially those of ancient Greece and Byzantium and of course by our people’s cultural heritage.
