Anna Vlahos, 2016, Greece
My work explores the visual languages of my two homes. The first one, Australia, talks to me by the shapes and textures from the environment. When I moved to Athens, I felt the absence of this nature for a long time. Eventually, I found a new nature in the ancient artefacts that come out of the ground as though growing there. I also found it in the imagery used by ancient artisans to describe their world. From the lines and motifs of the ancient artwork, I create models, which I use to build new shapes. Inspired by nature of Australia and the ancient art, I illustrate and explore the bond between my two homes.
