Watercolor, gouache, collage on paper | 2017

Karamallis produced this series of smaller watercolors during recent travels to McGregor, a small mountain village in South Africa. The artist portrays a garden landscape filled with pomegranate, persimmon, cyprus and olive trees; a metaphor for her own identity; Greek and Persian roots planted in South Africa.

Integral to her work, Karamallis’s use of mixed media collage incorporates paper of varying textures and thickness created from repurposed watercolors, painted paper and digitally designed patterns inspired by Persian tiles representative of her Middle Eastern heritage. The addition of mixed media of varying texture and thickness, creates a unique depth and intricacy to her watercolors.
