Hara Katsiki’s Victorian Ancestoral Memories

Greek artist Hara Katsiki’s Portrait series delves into the subconscious with highly stylized renderings on top of vintage photography.

“I’m extremely fascinated by old pictures. Especially from the Victorian era.  With an almost automatic drawing i transform them in a strange and surreal world of a fusion of clandestine Voodoo, ancestral memory, and personal revelation. I give them life again through my imagination.
I’m like a medium. I allow my hand to move randomly ,expressing the subconscious so that the final result may reveal something of the psyche.  I do not always look to tell a story or create meaning.
Sometimes by looking deeper you can find your own.”
