Grigorios Karastamatis

I have studied Archaeology / History of Art and Textile Design.
My work in its essence celebrates Mother Earth, Gaia; the living organism which inhales and exhales with us, has a heartbeat, and sings songs at nights under the starry skies for those who know how to listen.
By exploring colours, textures and patterns inspired by Scottish prehistoric pottery my work tries to synthesize within a visual context disparate elements drawn from the vast pool of our collective psyche; these elements are simultaneously different and yet the same. They are coming from numerous ages, forms, colours, textures, smells. They are trying to find ways to re-unite, to re-connect, and tell stories of old anew.
The work explores and tries to visually capture primordial forces of Nature; moments of creation, collision, fluidity, and raw beauty.
