In Paula’s words:

“The drawings I developed for my solo exhibition at Ionion Center for the Arts refer to the structure of Kefalonia’s landscape, especially to the movement of the sea. Also there is a connection between the reference to landscape and personal experience. The drawings reflect a study of nature, but they also embody the vicissitudes of inner states, feelings and wishes. In my work I try to capture and express the ephemerality of emotions. In correspondence to the drawings I built a large organic sculpture. I used natural materials that I found on the island to produce the object. Its shape are informed by my exploration of the landscape of Kefalonia.”
