During the last decade Tina Psoinos has worked extensively with fine arts photographic expressions in the purest sense, consciously avoiding any commercial influence. Her current work, which involves collages of photos with sketches and acrylic paint overlays, is the culmination of various experimental attempts in transcending light and color found in Greece, Indonesia, and New York. The work embodies the co-existence of contrasting forms of media, of animate with inanimate, and of distinctive attributes of culture and place and time, creating an environment that reflects the harmony of their discourse and speaks to our longing that we can all similarly connect disparate elements of our inner selves.
