A Glimpse And A Trace
"When walking through narrow streets and alleyways of
Venice, you can often catch a glimpse of 'what was' and
traces of 'moments long forgotten'. 

I make a point of taking no notice of modern-day
signage, designed for crowds to get to the right
monuments or to the correct, famous landmarks. I look
for the unimportant, the discarded, the lost and the
discontinued; images and texts that are ignored and are

The ancient rust of a door hinge, or a decaying wall, old
quite simply unworthy of anyone's gaze or attention.
posters advertising events that happened and became a
distant memory, sign posts pointing the way to
somewhere that no longer exists, writings scratched
into old brickwork; a message maybe? Something so
meaningful then, now utterly meaningless, now just
faded words.

I am intrigued by the history of these findings; the
process of layering and revealing, adding and taking
away fragments of materials; papers, metals, newsprint
and even graffiti. I consider them to be found pieces of
art; abstract paintings and collage, created in the same
way as they would be inside an artists studio, using
line, tone, colour and texture and with great thought
and great patience." -Fanoulla Georgiou
