Streets of Athens, 2014

Statement in English about the ceramic pictures.
Each city large or small has an essence of its own, its own harmony, its own melody.
This unique feeling I get from Athens is what I try to express in my pictures, the energy and the intensity of the city.
I identify with motifs I see around me, which give me such a strong feeling of this energy, this intensity. Small fragments, each telling their own story, but also being part of a bigger picture.
Utilizing photographs I have taken, I then transpose them manually onto a clay slab, manipulating them until I achieve a concentrated image of each specific motif. Any unnecessary details are left out until I feel the true pulse of Athens within me. To hear its melody.
This is what I strive to express in my pictures. To freeze in time some moments of everyday life, and to give them value.
