  • About the artwork – Part of a series of work made during from drawings made on location on the island of Zakynthos (Zante) at the Monastery Panagia Skopiotissa- a ruined series of buildings located near the top of Mount Skopos in the south-eastern part of the island. The monastery dates from 1624 within the ruins of an older monastery. The whole complex also acted as a watchtower for Zakynthos Town and a larger part of the island. The older monastery is thought to have been built on the site of an ancient temple to the Greek goddess, Artemis and is surrounded by the characteristic Mediterranean vegetation and Maquis of the Ionian Islands. The general architectural style of the katholikon more closely resembles post-Byzantine designs and I did many sketches from around the site that I hope to develop into further painting studies.
