PELLINA QUARRY - L.Boukouvala - 08


Τhe landscape is read through a strong contrast of white and black.

On the one hand the landscape on the surface of the skin of natural vegetation of the mountain massif, with its colors and tones and the coating of plant forms. On the other hand, the dazzling glow of white, for the giant wound of the stone basement, which has been dismembered and looted for centuries, then abandoned.

What a cynical ornament is this lamentable attempt to reforest the flesh of the rock chipped by stages, with these sparse rows of small marks, a series of crosses signifying an irreparable disaster.

We encounter today and read about this irreparable trauma in the body of nature.
