he wok Roses is a vase of roses, rendered in pastel, which is her favourite theme, for which she received international awards. Having abandoned the classical rendering of flower painting, Mitsea-Malamou creates her personal space and by the way to placing the flowers in it, she gives each flower personal substance and reality. The pastel technique with the light material and the sensitive colour, makes this work tender an dreamlike.
