THE ICON OF THE MEMORY

 

What happens to the icon of our memories, every time we recall them up on to the surface of our consciousness? Does that icon always stay the same or is it every time somewhat different?Five famous women, from the classic and modern Greek history are the main inspiration of these paintings.Having all the above thoughts in mind and by using canvasses of different sizes combined with some plywood I developed a style that is parallel to the complexity of this subject.
