“In The mosquito, there’s a girl scratching her arm”
Courtesy of the artist.
My three paintings The invaders ,The mosquito and The swing all depict everyday life through some irony. In particular, The invaders provide a political comment on those who have built a house as a shelter on a place that the law does not approve of. In The mosquito, there’s a girl scratching her arm, which is just a simple act, a picture that you can see everywhere in Greece during the summer. Such a picture takes me back to a period of time when I was carefree. The swing leaves parts of the canvas blank so that more emphasis is placed on the girl on the swing.
