About the Artwork

The fabric depicted is of the highest quality; it is used for Archbishops’ chasubles during religious ceremonies. Such a fabric can be flawless or it may have folds, wrinkles and "dark areas". The "Transformations" series is Eva Marathaki’s personal interpretation of religion, religious politics and practices.
