“Double ties” BENAKI MUSEUM ( Pireos building ) Rattan, threads. 150 x 380 x 380 cm. 2009

I try to translate my ideas into structural forms
to express the antithesis of the in and out
to penetrate through a transparent surface into the inner world,
to communicate.
In terms of form, my works are poised on the boundary between
a freely developing open form and a controlled disciplined structure.
I like this contradiction.
I use threads, strings, rattan and mainly handmade paper
which I make myself so I can have the exact paper I need for each piece.
During the period from my studies to today
I have used many different media.
But two remain steady.
Painting and drawing.
The ones I began with.
