About the exhibition:”Danae Skaraki’s  Mediterranean Women”
This is the first presentation of the painting project of Danai Skaraki in public. It includes portraits of women,  children and and adolescents.The models are the vivid memories of women who passed Danai’s  home in Benghazi, Libya, when she was young – women from all over the Mediterranean.

Danai painted these memories with quick and powerful brushstrokes, bold colors and forms. Bodies and eyes of women, resisting the photographic impression of the moment, encourage the viewer to look behind the apparent image of a photo.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
