FACES / INTRO

 

FACES HISTORY

The word metamorphosis has Greek roots meaning transformation, a subject that the Roman poet Ovid explored in his book Metamorphoses (8 AD). Weaving together Greek and Roman fairytales, stories and myths, Ovid’s tales of people turning into animals, plants and stones has been a recurring companion for Arje Griegst, most notably seen in the Faces series. “Proportions, emotional expressions, and facial features reflect the creator. Through art we get to meet another person’s soul” – Arje Griegst
