Gaia // Antonis Tsarouchas

In Greek mythology, Gaia existed before anything else. The omnipresent and shapeless figure of Mother Earth, and primordial deity who bore the Gods of the seas, skies and mountains, is the spiritual embodiment of Earth and all life. Greek artist Antonis Tsarouchas tells WOM about his fine art series named after the mythological goddess, as a metaphor for the power of womanhood.

Grief’s Eternal Day

Once upon a time in a stainless-steel dream
Two famelicose smiles devoured a dead scream
Chewing on its gristle, hollowing out its dune
Crumbling stray cinders into a solid prune

In a withering wilting world upon a lyre
I smudged scorched faults with a disdain
That belied my quaking waffle’s refrain
Festering, blistering, seeping sputtering fire
