Oh no! This is toxic
2015

My new work addresses the environmental issues.
Human activities are contaminating the world’s water systems and disrupting the lives of animals.
From toxic chemical runoff to the accumulation of litter, miles away from land.
We alter the planet rapidly and we experience the consequences.
I used tar as my main material in order to convey the threat, the fear and the crude death
of all living beings that live in nature and are condemned by the humanity.
In my country, Greece, tar is a very common finding on our beaches.
Sometimes, in collaboration with the sea, they create unique sculptures,
the content of which is a mysterious mixture of life and death.

Birds of Hell (or The eyes of an ugly monster want to eat my soul)
2015

Tar, bronze, pigment, plastic bag
Mixed media

The road I follow has no end.
My way is a cross – way.
Over the mountains, watching the watcher that watches the birds fly free before they die.
The eyes of an ugly monster want to eat my soul.
Finding yourself being involved in a situation beyond any limit, as my country does now, makes you feel awkward.
During the creativity process, monsters come out of your bench.
Monsters that eat your brain, your soul, your power and the birds, are birds no more.
They are creatures filled with blood. Look like rats and hell is on its way..

Bird of Paradise
2015

Handpiece
Tar, sand, light bulb, paper, bronze
Mixed media

I created this piece in order to convey the beauty and the ugliness.
The tradition, the sound of the sea, the sand on our beaches in contradiction with the death
of all the beings that live under the water and suffer from the ecological disaster.

The leftovers of another life
2015

Neckpiece
keychain light, batteries, light bulb, pigment, bronze, tar, silk & cotton thread
Mixed media

Between light and dark lies the world of our past.
The place where we safely keep all our memories,
all our forbidden thoughts, all our fears,
all the things that we could have been but we are not.
When we turn on the light, we live in the present.
When we turn off the light, we live in our past.
Choose every time who you want to be.
The one that you have left behind or the one that you have become.

Deconstructing the Cube
2014

After I studied the austere geometry of the formal, my work led me into something different:
The concept of Deconstruction. I started by deconstructing the cube.
For me, deconstruction is not simply the fragmentation of the structured form,
but the dematerialization of the material itself.
What at the end of the process seem like a solid base, are the results of both:
controlled tempering and the unexpected outcomes of experimentation with the fusion technique.
Finally, the white color of the metal symbolizes the dynamics of a new beginning.

Cities In Dust
2014

Travelling to Morocco a million pictures come after one another. All the abandonned cities had been made in such a way that they don’t seperate from the scenery. They stay hidden. All covered with sand and dust. Dust from the past that comes to cover what is unrevealed.

The Origin of Symmetry
2013

In this work, I explore architecture influenced by the avant-garde art movements of Cubism & Constructivism
that later influenced trends as Bauhaus & Destijl movement.
I design jewelry that assembles in an abstracted form, creating a multitude of viewpoints
plus a multitude of applications.
Originally what leads me in making innovative forms is that I am interested in the reflection of the viewer.
The collection is made of gold-platted bronze, rhodium-platted bronze and oxidized silver.
Bronze is cut, fold and soldered to express the three dimensions.
Oxidized silver chain is used to present the bronze sculptures.
