'ΙΧΝΗ/TRACES

This series is mostly about me, my life and the people around me.

The work is mixed media on canvas. I'm using oil paints, pastels and collage of pages from my old sketchbooks, from journals and photographs of myself and people who are close to me. I'm exploring the journey of my life until now - the factors that affected it, the elements that altered it and the influences that are still echoing in this process. There is a strong sense of memoirs of my life and I specifically explore the trajectory between the past and the present. Most of the pieces are self-portraits and reflect on the process of personal discovery of my influences - how they formed who I am today. All in all, in a simple sentence the work is a narrative of who I am and who I became the person I am today.
