On the older works (Iconoclasm* I, II, III) the series of photos capture, in detail, ruined parts of old,  Icons found in the chapel of Agios-Athonas in Pelion, Greece. There is a dance of decay spreading slowly on the wooden surface of the icon and on some parts it is like a small insect engraved marks on its passage. A visible contrast has been shaped as time exceeds the divine depiction and the hand of the painter leaving us with a new creation coming from the beauty of destruction. 
Later, on the works Iconoclasm IV, V and VI, the concept of Iconoclasm takes another form. In this series, I use photography to detach parts of bigger pictures, icons or wall murals, creating new ones by focusing on details. The details can be background figures, shapes and destroyed parts. By cutting out and framing parts of a bigger total the story of representation changes.
*Iconoclasm, historically refers to the destruction of images or hostility toward visual representations in general, most frequently for religious or political reasons. In this case it applies to the point that these works depict ruined parts of icons or fragments of them but are not associated with any religious/political reasons and are not destroyed on purpose.
