Fayoum-Portraits

In 2012 I was a resident at the Apothiki Art Center on the Greek island of Paros. During my stay I attended a lecture, given by Euphrosyne Doxiadis, about the Fayoum Portraits. These old paintings inspired me to make 12 clay portraits.

I tried to bring back to live the characters who were represented in these 2000 year-old paintings .

From the sculptures, I took photographs which I later hand-painted and printed on wooden planks.
