Artist's biography

Christos Pantieras is an Ottawa-based multi-disciplinary artist who works in sculpture, installation, drawing, and mixed-media.

Project Statement

I Miss Talking to You is a free-standing wall consisting of 1024 bricks cast in wax. The wax has been procured from a Greek Orthodox Church in Ottawa and is sourced from candles that have once been lit in prayer, in hope, or in memory. Along one length of the wall the text from an apologetic email, that was once composed to express regret from a failed relationship, is carved into the wax. Word for word, brick by brick, the work becomes a monumental representation of the barriers built between two individuals and the walls that must be climbed in order to move on from ones personal history and experiences.
