Here are my thesis painitings and my proposal:
May 1st 1999, my family and I moved to the United states from Greece for a better tomorrow and better life. Through my first years I couldn’t think anything else but my country. While searching a way to get closer to what I really miss, I started painting scenes from the Greek islands. Painting was the only action that made me feel better.
Seven years have passed since then and I still find escape routes in my paintings. My thesis is dedicated in the loving memory of my grandmother that passed away Christmas of 2005. It is hard for me to believe she is dead due to the fact I spend the summer of 2005 with her. I never thought that would be the last time I would see her. These painting don’t only represent my thesis but a part of my self.
