SYCHROTISMI

SYCHROTISMI

"If it isn't a cataclysm
of heavens powers
what are, therefore,
those flowers?"

NIKIFOROS VRETTAKOS
"Flowery plateau" 

"Sychrotismi" is where picture meets poetry and jewellery micro sculpture in order to hymn the magic of Greek nature.

Photos shot by the artist photographer John Papamatthaiou. The sensitive eyes of his soul helped him see a unique perspective of the wildflowers of the Greek Earth. He photographed them in a way that now they themselves say: "Here we are, the daily, unique and eternal jewels of Nature"! These are the flowers that we often pass by without even looking at them! They, however, gain life with the help of the photographer's magical lens, inspiring the artist to search for poetry verses that seem to be written just for them. This is how the pictures were put together with poetry, leaving the viewer to feel and judge this union.

This union has sought its completion in the micro-sculpture of jewellery. Wonderful wildflowers transformed from earth ornaments to small jewellery sculptures, human ornaments that remind us of the unsurpassed beauty of Mother Nature. Photos, poetry and jewellery together constitute a humble pilgrimage to greatness. It is nature that makes the mind to dream, the heart to fall in love, the soul to be flooded with the blessing of God and the man to become a small creator.

Through photography we gained the ability to discover what is aesthetically beautiful. Through poetry, the language of emotions, we were able to understand, feel and admire this beauty and then, through the jewellery creation, we gained the ability to touch.

Let these "Sychrotismi" become the message to all of us, humans that will bring us closer to Nature and will help us stop its reckless destruction. Let us protect her and love her all over again.
