Invisibility Cloaks and Growing Wings
Kranias investigates movement, the body, and emotion through ceramic sculpture. Grounded in a feminist interpretation of myth and archetype, her works are vehicles for feminine protection, freedom, and empowerment. The Invisibility Cloaks (2018-2019) reference the ancient Greek myth of Daphne, a water nymph transformed into a tree by Gaia as an act of protection. The sculptures evoke the female body wrapped in a protective cloak of trees. The Growing Wings (2017-2019) series recall the mythological Nike, a winged female figure who embodies the spirit of victory.
