angelica sotiriou,

SCALA. February 2024. Media: acrylic, caran d’ache, grease pencil, interference powders, graphite.

“Intelligent silence is the mother of prayer, a recall from captivity, preservation of fire, an overseer of thoughts, a watch against enemies, a prison of mourning, a friend of tears, effective remembrance of death, a depicter of punishment, a delver into judgment, a minister of sorrow, an enemy of freedom of speech, a companion of stillness, an opponent of dogmatism, increase of knowledge, a creator of divine vision, hidden progress, secret ascent.”

– John Climacus: The Ladder of Divine Ascent
