An imposing work of large dimensions, an amazing self-portrait of unique quality by Nikos Kessanlis, a Dean of the Athens School of Fine Arts. With masterly skill he showcases his dedication to authenticity and inventive design often exploring the boundaries of identification and counter-identification. It is an intellectual composition that demonstrates masterful craftsmanship while also offering a profound reflection on the inevitability of mortality, the allure of the fragment and its morphoplastic power as a remedy to forgetfulness. By juxtaposing the fragmentary and the primordial to restore rational representation the amazing picture establishes a significant dialectical relationship between matter and the lost image.
