Corfusiana is a collection of the scribbles I made when out and about in Corfu with no intention of making them into a book. The collection spans years of walking through villages with my companions and my eye would be caught by some interesting motif, and so the collection began to evolve. The drawings are only approximations. As an artist I am by nature an ‘impressionist’ (a good excuse!) but in putting these things together, they started to arrange themselves and give insights into the artists/craftsman who created them and links began to emerge, and variations on the themes seem infinite.
Now that Corfu has changed so much and irrevocably, and with so little regard for its own unique heritage –I hope this collection will open the eyes of others.
