Εδώ είναι η κουζίνα του μαγαζιού (This is the entrance to the restaurant)
2022
Plastic wall paint, spray paint, oil stick, 6 feta barrels
217 x 160 cm

Feta was the dominant recipe ingriedient in my family's restaurant in Brooklyn, from which the livelihood of two generations were dependent on. As an attempt to match this sentiment, the tin barrels are meant to act as the base for the painting that is dedicated to the family record of that time period. In the painted text I attempt to copy and enlarge a handwritten note found on the back of a photograph, which was part of my family's frequent correspondence with relatives in Greece in the 1960's.
