"Ties" @ The Aegean Center for the Fine Arts on Paros Island, Greece
My first solo exhibition, Paros Island Greece, since 2007:
It is a great honor for me to have this show as part of the 50-year-celebration of the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts on the island: the place and the people, where I first started my art adventure 20 years ago. I would like to thank John and Jane Pack, the owners of the Aegean Center, for allowing me to work in this magical place, as if I was in a residency program.
In "Desimata-Ties" I am sharing works from 2008 until now: pieces and ideas that are enriched and transformed with new elements discovered during my trips the last 5 years -after I left Greece- as well as new pieces that the space and the island inspired me.
Lastly but most importantly: This show is dedicated to my family, and all of those who support and inspire me through the years. I am grateful!
