An excellent, artistically unique poetic rendering of the old Monastery of Timios Prodromos Ioannis in the remote inaccessible ravine S.E of Desfina in the Fokida region of Greece, which is inextricably linked to the identity of the Greek National Revolution of 1821. In his memoirs, General Makryiannis mentions it as a pilgrimage-shelter, conveying the historical weight of the Palaeologian building from the 13th-14th century. This Monastery was where the national revolutionary of Roumeli, Despot Isaiah, Bishop of Salon became a monk; this was where Athanasios Diakos was welcomed to the monastic order at a young age. The relationships between the mountainous volumes are captured with psychographic rhythmology and sharp design, filling the composition with a golden yellow “glory”. The shades of blue and green reshape the volumes in anti-naturalistic formations overstepping physiocratic orders to emit life and energy.
