Ava Orphanoudakis: Many Voices, One Song


  • Environmental Science Center 21 Sachem Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)
Ava Orphanoudakis’ love for nature and her deep respect and concern for the environment are the major driving forces of her life's work in both Greece and the United States.
Her painting process is a mixed media approach and she often uses a fragmented composition to express a variety of environmental themes. Taking ecology and music as her models, her intention is not to isolate the parts from the whole, but rather to differentiate and diversify the compositions to give a greater emphasis to the harmonious rhythmic patterns that unify the space-parts to whole, whole to parts.
