Mountains and their canyons, ravines, cliffs, boulders, peaks and all the various aspects that comprise their DNA are keepers of earth's stories. Textures and colours are footprints of stories and worlds gone past. Gems found in the ground are crystalised solid forms of time stamps and immense planet activity.
Ovires is a collection born from a revisit to the gorge of Vikos, the largest in Europe, that lies an hour away from my birth city of Ioannina, Greece. The memories of childhood while visiting this space and the eyes of adulthood with which I witnessed the gorge anew laid bare the narrative of earth. The Ovires collection pieces elude to the richness of texture and surface of the cliff rocks and boulders as they have been sculpted by time and memory.with gems adding the colourful splashes of organic life and water.
