Alchemy prints

The central core of my work has always been related to the abstract inner forces of the esoteric life of human beings. Using the grass motif as a compositional element, together with images excerpted from books on alchemy, I attempted to explore the chemistry they produce. Also the process of transferring the images on zinc plates through a chemical procedure, gave me the necessary leverage for a better understanding of the visual qualities of symbolic art, which is depicted in many illustrated books of the history of printing. I was fascinated by the height of the allegoric language achieved through the combination of text and image in these books dated from medieval times and up till the end of the 19th century.
