Breaking The Ice/Σπαζοντας τον παγο


‘Breaking the ice’minimal collage on paper by Angela Zafiris

To be the first to break the ice of the enterprize.”- Plutarch, ‘Lives of the noble Grecians and Romanes’

“If it be so, sir, that you are the man
Must stead us all and me amongst the rest,
And if you break the ice and do this feat,
Achieve the elder, set the younger free
For our access, whose hap shall be to have her
Will not so graceless be to be ingrate.”  Shakespeare, ‘The Taming of the Shrew’



Collage on paper by Angela Zafiris

Unseen forces

and foes alike

tried to cut you down

dark feathers in the wind

you fought

in this world of

negative faces

and negative places

they say you have to fight

your battles alone

but they were wrong

we are not alone

an invisible hand

like a lightening bolt

reaches for you through the clouds

you were chosen

Most virtuous

and noble of all

worthy of redemption.

Collage Mosaics/Κολάζ Ψηφιδωτά


Some tiny works of art made from torn papers from magazines. The collage mosaic on the left depicts a beach scene and the mosaic on the right an olive branch.

Μερικά μικρά έργα τέχνης κατασκευασμένα από σκισμένα χαρτιά από περιοδικά. Το ψηφιδωτό κολάζ στα αριστερά απεικονίζει μια σκηνή παραλία και το ψηφιδωτό στα δεξιά ένα κλαδί ελιάς.
