This series of self portraits and portraits of my person taken between 2012 and 2017 in the island of Corfu.

These works can especially focus on texture and its inherent emotional qualities, the way a visual pattern can intrigue, repulse, stimulate. But interestingly, in this series, you will find a shift in focus from that sharp clarity to a greater ambiguity—with a greater play on shadows and silhouettes, and most uncharacteristically perhaps, the blurring of an image.And indeed, you will find here not only that signature darkness but also crisp imagery, especially in some exquisite “portraits” of the reflected in broken mirrors or glass.

Platanas here achieves a different kind of tension: the subject itself is not so much seen clearly as merely implied, something grand and phantasmic captured mid-blink. Some of these images are so obscured, they venture entirely into the abstract. [Text by August Smith]
