Anestis Logothetis’s work initially inspired me to begin a number of projects. Later, I expanded my research to music and its history. Some basic influences throughout my research included the works of Alexander Skryabin, John Cage and Ioannis Xenakis. My artwork deals with the association between sound and pictorial result, with the solitary purpose of their harmonious coexistence in a pure pictorial artwork. Sound transforms into noise, gliding modes and clatters; data that is considered musical “garbage” to the western tonal system. “Garbage” like the items I collect from recycling bins, junk shops and rubble to create my artwork symbolizes the concepts which I use as critique to our social system. These are means that help my artwork to articulate a caustic political standpoint.
