Palm Springs Fine Art Fair

Glimpses of what I saw and liked, was impressed, surprised and inspired at the Art Fair.
PS I was also impressed by the [arty] visitors at the opening night!

For the last few months I have been working in preparation for a show I was invited to present, at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft using the cyanotype process.
For me the two elements that define the process, the sunlight and the resulting cyan color, are synonymous with my birth place: Greece, and so this project became a stage to a most personal sequence of thoughts related to my heritage and upbringing, narrated through the cyan and cyan toned variations I created. The show opened last Friday and is in view until March 30.
