Anna Georghiou 2017
‘Water Carriers’ (el portador d’aigua) in part is a homage recognising all those who carried water from the river Ebro to the village. Water contains many symbolism’s living and flowing, the vital source of life. The mural is also a celebration of color, harmony, beauty and imagination. It was wonderful to talk to local people who could remember those who experienced carrying water along this path.
Anna’s work depicts groups of figures in a timeless setting; offering viewers alternative possible worlds, questioning perceptions of reality and being. Her work embraces creativity, imagination, spirit and colour.
“The honesty in art is important to me, Art does not need to follow trends empty surface. In an age of cynicism. I wish to affirm the enduring qualities of the human spirit and attempt to reignite the search for the Logos (the soul), and “perceptive power of the mind”.
