About the Exhibition

Kemal draws his inspiration from the Greek Goddess Aphrodite. Her birth, the goddess of beauty rising from white foams from the sea, is the key element that relates to shadows and reflections. The work is inclusive of sea, with focus on reflections in water and representation of beauty, and love.

Shadows and Reflections is about the people from Cyprus migrating to a different country and setting roots as an individual person in a London.  The work is about how someone perceives the world, and how we see and interrupt things people feel alone and have no family or friends.

The artist’s intention with this show is to create awareness of the Cypriot cultural diversity on both sides of the island, hoping it will provide a representation of diversity and solidarity all around the world in a time where Brexit is very prominent.
