He magically captures the island landscape by condensing the maximum into the minimum, a strong sense of scale, with the beauty of simplicity and the rudimentary writing and shaping of the individual architectural elements. The depiction of the structure and organization of the volumes, the Sicilian’s personal geography, its coherent contours, simple tones, patterns and volumetric clarity allude to the spatial organization of Byzantine art. The way of depicting the structure and organizing the volumes, Sikeliotis’s personal geography with coherent contours, austerity in tones and simplification of patterns, all with volumetric purity, refers to the spatial organization of Byzantine art. Densely constructed building with a labyrinthine network of openings dominated by tiers. Although iconographically the human presence is absent, it is nevertheless implied in this anthropogenic environment. In the non-realistic “panoramic” painting of the landscape, although the space is symbolic, the architectural volumes are distinct despite their abstract depiction, making evident the features of the neighborhood of the island settlement
