Painting on porcelain digitalised in air vacuum on diasec.

Part of the series 'Storms'.

"The work on display constitutes nature's epic: austere in words (in the signs of men) yet powerful as the hour of the tempest or a summit's moment of illumined unconcealment. If one was inclined to literary analogy, one would refer to excerpts from Conrad or Melville. Far removed from mysticism and the pretentious, the work is steeped in an oceanic feeling, similar to what one encounters in Moby Dick - and the storm battered caravel cannot fail to remind the readers of the Great Eastern, the haunted sailboat Alberta. While the "Storm" fluid, erratic like the infinitesimal snapshot of a tempestuous sea, brings to mind those moments in Conrad's rich yet precise language, when we are given the awe of the seamen confronted by the vast, ineffable ocean. And one could go on, with more references to works of ecstasy and austerity - for all genuine ecstasy is austere." - Nikos Sigalas, Institut Français d'Etudes Anatoliennes Read less
