John Stathatos
Homage to Heraclitus: Earth II

1991

About

This photograph is part of a series (Three Heraclitean Elements), conceived around the speculations on the nature of the universe made by pre-Socratic philosopher Heraclitus, who believed the physical world to be composed of three elements: fire, water, and earth. The series consists of images made within the same few square miles of the Greek island of Kythira, arranged in three sequences corresponding to each of the elements. For the Earth, Stathatos took some close-up of caves. The theatrical lighting, created by the natural light entering the cave, shapes a suggestive "natural sculpture" of shadows and lights, intensified by the choice of a black and - white medium. This is print #1 of and edition of 7 It is mounted on aluminum and laminated. Should the collector wish to acquire the artwork unmounted or with a different mount, we are available to discuss the various options available.
