Working with the malleability of clay, Fragkou draws reference to the medium’s inherent fluidity, akin to water and ocean waves. Creating rhythmic overlapping and interwoven forms, the artist distils an essence of frozen movement in her sculptural pieces.
Balance and harmony are pivotal elements that are deeply rooted in the artist’s practice. For the artist, each artwork represents a spiritual space, an internal labyrinth of thought where peace and tranquillity can be encountered.
