TAMPAKARIA


By the entrance I can sense something good is catching my eye.
Passing the entrance and entering the hallway, I’m still under the impression of being outside.
The stone made arches take me back in time; three hundred years before.
The rock.
A natural spring coming down the rock, a traditional indoor built furnace and a steam caldron stove.
The room looking over the Aegean Sea.
A Turkish –bath.
The cement tiles of the porch.
Dozens of old decorative items waiting to tell their stories to the visitors.
One glance is not enough to identify them all…
Once again Demetris Demertzis has done what he knows best.
Through tones of garbage and debris he managed to reveal a space of fine aesthetics to share with the rest of the world.
Words cannot describe the overwhelming feelings coming upon me every time I enter the threshold.
Images speak on their own to eyes willing to listen.
Well, this is a characteristic sample of Demetris Demertzis ability to “compose” a new world made of old, seemingly “useless” and “disparate” items. With a courtesy of another era he invites us in for a visit.



The honored visitor.
