Healing the Heart Of Cyprus collection is a collection of paintings all about this beautiful island of love. Throughout history Cyprus has seen difficult times. The year of 2013 again she has faced more challenges. Healing the Heart of Cyprus is about giving love back to this beautiful Island. These paintings are to bring new faith and hope. To renew and replenish. To relight the fire within the souls of the nation and reawaken the energy of Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, who protects Cyprus and empowers both women and men who are ready to embrace the softer, feminine aspects of self. Find God’s light within the heart of Cyprus. Find God’s light within your own soul.

In each painting Cyprus is represented by the heart shape and each painting contains a physical property of this magical Island. (physical properties in the form of : sea water has been used to mix the paint, some paintings contain red soil and some contain sand, shells or stones.) I have kept a simple palette of limited colours to all of the paintings in this series.
At the beginning of 2013 I felt inspired to create a series of paintings to ‘heal the heart of Cyprus’ and mapped out pages of sketches of how these paintings would be. I started work on them and shortly afterwards here in Cyprus we experienced the collapse of the banking system and the ‘crisis’ began. I continued my work and launched the paintings in an exhibition in September 2013.

 

The exhibition at Theta will include both original paintings and prints.
The exhibition will run through out the whole of September.
Paintings will be on display from Sunday 3/9/2017
There will be an official opening evening on Saturday 9/9/2017 where you will be able to meet the artist.

 

At the beginning of 2013 I felt guided to create a series of paintings to 'heal the heart of Cyprus' and created pages of sketches of how these paintings would be. I started work on them and shortly afterwards here in Cyprus we experienced the collapse of the banking system and the 'crisis' began. I continued my work and exhibited the paintings in September 2013 for the first time. Throughout history Cyprus has seen difficult times. This year again (2013) again she has faced more challenges. Healing the Heart of Cyprus is about giving love back to this beautiful Island. These paintings are to bring new faith and hope. To renew and replenish. This painting in particular is symbolic of relighting the fire within the souls of the nation and reawaken the energy of Aphrodite,goddess of love and beauty, who protects Cyprus and empowers both women and men who are ready to embrace the softer, feminine aspects of self. Find God's light within the heart of Cyprus. Find God's light within your own soul. In each painting Cyprus is represented by the heart shape and each painting contains a physical property of this magical Island.
