Chios from a different perspective

Personal Work, 2016

Set in Chios, inspired by the diversity of its architecture, i created scenes of a dream world, escaping from the mundane presentation of my place.

The exhibition  consists of digitally edited  photographic collages, reflecting a personal view of the island's identity.

Human figures, sometimes familiar and sometimes unknown, borrowed from snapshots of my travels.

Each canvas is a unique journey into seas and hidden treasures in villages, and even though residents are scarce,  the auras are beautiful.

It’s the same little girl running in two different directions in this layered photo, escaping in a fairyland where fish happily coexist with cattle, and land and sea are merged. An understated remark about identity, choices and childhood.

The female ghostly figure is almost mocking rationalism: if spirits do not exist, how can she wander freely in “our” world, defying matter and space?
Notice the exquisite fabric details.

It’s not easy to jettison the shopper identity, even when one walks in a medieval village. You would imagine that there’s hardly anything to buy here, and yet the sign “For sale” on the decrepit house proves otherwise, in an image where hyperconsumerism contrasts sharply with rural abandonment.
