Greek Motifs

The Series "Greek Motifs" reflects my desire to create new images using familiar motifs from the rich and endless history of Greece. Each motif has been researched and selected from a specific era - cut from linoleum and printed onto a stucco-like surface giving the image distrested effect and a sense of "elapsed time".
