Stratografia and Isolario series (2013-2019)
Through my paintings, I connect with "sensation of place" memories to transport back to urban and Mediterranean locales.
Constructed of layered, gestural geometries, each painting maps an experience of specific location; primarily those found in Cyprus and Greece. They recall site, space, circulation, ambient color, natural and human-built structures, architectural form, archeological presence, and landscape.
