ARTIST STATEMENT: My paintings exist in a dreamlike state between two worlds creating a fleeting, weightless moment. Their essence migrates between water, sky and land, merging memories of near and far.
Built upon memories of growing up in Cyprus, like the way the sky peaked through the grapevines along the veranda of her late grandmother’s house or how the horizon dividing water and land dissipated at certain moments of the day, an imaginary timeless place is formed where new histories can be realized.
The work alludes to landscape’s role of reinventing our own myths, while becoming viable metaphors for what’s real and what’s imagined. In a pursuit to investigate personal relationships to cultural dislocation and memory, nature, and site, it becomes a continuous attempt to build bridges between different worlds and realities.
