Study for the work ,, The Rape of Europe''

Material: oil on canvas
Size: 60 x 60 cm

SHORT STATEMENT ABOUT THE WORK The relationship between man and history is the main concern of my work.It attempts to explore the form and structure of history , and to evaluate our context within it, creating a narrative . which can perhaps be read as the struggle between traditional values and the all march of progress. I do not exclude all associations and symbolism from the works. Although dealing with universal issues I feel the work has a strong East European character wich has developed through an exploration of the affinity between the Romanian Ortodox an Greek traditions.
