The ancient Greeks believed that Ether, Fire, Water, Air and Earth are the building blocks which compose our reality, our planet, our bodies, stars and galaxies. Everything. So I asked myself how these elements would feel and what specific role they would play in creating reality. This is how the “ELEMENTS” series of paintings came up, as a visual answer to my questions.

The ancient Greeks believed that Ether, Fire, Water, Air and Earth are the building blocks which compose our reality, our planet, our bodies, stars and galaxies... everything.  FIRE is the second of the 5 elements. It represents the absolute power and energy. It can burn until purification, but when at the correct distance, it brings warmth and creates the necessary conditions for life. “FIRE 02” is part of the ELEMENTS series and is created with acrylic on canvas. Detailed Paintings, Absolute Power, 5 Elements, Greeks, Our Planet, Ancient Greek, Our Body, Galaxies, Distance

AIR is the fourth of the 5 elements. This element’s essence is communication. It is the one to make the link between the pure energy of Fire and the hidden potential of Water. It could represent the outcome of placing Fire beneath Water in a way that they can coexist and transform each other. 5 Elements, Greeks, Ancient Greek, Our Body, Ethereal, Galaxies, Bodies, Communication, Fire
