CM: My work has been deeply affected by my studies of myth and ancient cultures. The work is layered with ancient symbols and modern processes. My style is one of abandon within control. The images are discovered in the process of painting, maintaining a fine balance between control and letting go. The underlying theme of all of the work is of the interconnectedness of all life. The work expresses my belief in a world where spirit manifests in physical form. The work is layered - with paint; with feelings of body and soul as one whole… the indescribable nature of another dimension… the interconnectedness of all life. § Living on the island of Lesbos in the late 1980's was a very special time for me. During this time people on the island still lived very close to the land. I think this pervasive feeling of being connected to the land allowed something deep and ancient to open in me. I began to express my belief that we are all connected, that body and soul are one whole, by the breaking up of space into separate but connected forms. § In Multidimensional Molivos I once again explore the multidimensional nature of reality. The night sea and the day sea exist simultaneously, emerging out of a geometric field containing guardian figures, portals of transformation, and ancient symbols.
