This series came into being at first within the boiling energy of Exarchia (Athens), then it deployed its matrix in many - sided elsewhere which bear the imprints, the gaps and the elements of resistance of a society on its last leg. Here the opaque signs of a primitive ephemeral urban alphabet come to the surface. There delicate, shivering skins come modestly into view, the fragile delight of life fighting to survive. This work is a polysemous corpus set into deep, contradictory fows. Colours and materials, lines and faces, signified and significant jostle together here, they come to the surface from the very bustling depths of our towns and of our bodies just like foam on gale days.
