“The primitive Monk”

Schistolithic stone, quartz, marble
sculpture 30 x 9 x 9.5 cm, base 6 x 14,5 x 15 cm. Total 36 x 14.5 x 15 cm


Hiking in Tinos island, an island full of schistolithic stone, quartz and marble. In between my sculpting courses and hiking i collect pieces of stone, marble quartz and wood.

The interaction of materials with the physical need of creation, location, imagination creates the artwork.

This sculpture is composed from schistolithic stone and quartz in a white marble from Tinos island. All pieces were collected from different hiking paths of the island. I still do remember the day i found the body of the primitive because i found first the head. The inner voice calling me to collect it can’t be described with words.

The head is separated and not glued. It fits and stands psychically.
