Tar, bronze, pigment, plastic bag.



My new work addresses 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.
