Description

"Poros" is a small Greek island-pair in the southern part of the Saronic Gulf, at a distance about 58 km south from Piraeus and separated from the Peloponnese by a 200 m wide sea channel, with the town of Galatas on the mainland across the strait.

Stroh creates an abstracted, foggy landscape with reflections and hints of objects, leaving it to the viewer to bring the subject into his or her own focus.
