The print assemblages that Maureen is showing below are inspired by her travels to Greece and Cyprus.

The images refer to the ancient myth of the birth of Aphrodite from the foam of the sea in a beautiful bay in Cyprus . The images are printed onto canvas which is lashed with cord through eyelets onto the frames; this evokes  the ten years of Ulysses wandering the seas after the fall of Troy.
