This series of works reflects Christoph Ziegler's experience with life in Greece at summertime. Heat and fire are the basic "tools" the artist uses to join and distort moulded plastic parts he buys at household or toy stores and melts them into jewellery pieces. The concentric compositions are inspired by the colors and shapes of the prefab synthetic material.
Loukia Richards embroiders her ideas on paper and turns it into a solid canvas for her expressionistic portraits. The series reflects on the Orthodox tradition of forgiveness and change which allow a prostitute, usurer or thief etc. to become a saint.
Sketches Gestapo prisoners engraved on the walls of their cells - now a Memorial in down town Athens - are transformed into jewellery to reflect eros' victory over the fear of death.
