This series was originally inspired by the cultural influences of the ‘evil eye‘. Everywhere in the Middle East one can see the protective amulets. The Stratified Jewels are unique glass artworks. Pigmented silicones are the pool for several materials, such as gold leaf, broken glass and metallic powders.
The tradition of using protective amulets is ancient and essentially superstitious. Yorgos however believes that it makes much more sense to steer the world away from evil by promoting certain values, concepts and attitudes. Art, where the need for completeness is irrelevant, seems to be the perfect medium for that purpose.
