“A heap of broken images where the sun beats”* is the second exchange between artists from Greece and California, creating a dialogue between these seemingly disparate cultures.
“Broken images” is another way of expressing how the mind processes images as fragments pieced together to form an impression of reality consisting of our inner thoughts, emotions, and memories layered over an optic reality. “Where the sun beats” connects the two locations of Los Angeles, California and Paros, Greece.
Special thanks to John and Jane Pack of the The Aegean Center for the Fine Arts for generously allowing us to use their beautiful building for this project.
