Two thank-you cards relating to Julia Andriadou's book "LOW FLIGHT"

Sent by the eminent Greek curator at the Goulandris Museum of Contemporary Art, Andros (Greece), Kyriakos Koutsomallis.

Dear Mrs Andreiadou,
Thank you for giving me the pleasure of holding in my hands this little
masterpiece that's brimming with delicacy and feeling.
What a magnificent combination and identification of image and word?
This form of being does not presage closing down but opening up to life.
It isn't half but all of you that will remain a kid. Which is what I wish you
wholeheartedly. And, to remember Matisse: 'I hope we will always stay
young, no matter how old we grow.'
You continue to lift yourself through Art. These are your words.
If I'm repeating them, it's because they express meaning.

With my renewed thanks, please accept also my sincere congratulations.

With great esteem and friendly regards,
Kyriakos Koutsomallis

Sent by acclaimed Greek poet Kiki Dimoula

My dear Julia,
Not a low, but a magical flight! I mean it quite literally:
I had little idea it would reveal to me such gossamer,
silky veins as dreams have and such wailful landscape-migrations!
Even just the titles you've assigned to the [book's] sections are
the envy of verses by worthy poets who had no luck devising them.
Honestly: originality as prudent and as lyrical is rare.

I congratulate you and I thank you warmly.

With much love,
Ę.

To Julia Andriadou
(...) I wish I could fully explain how important your words have been to me. I am so
happy that my art is able to make someone fly (...) When others enjoy my images like
you do, my happiness is real; nothing to do with the enflated ego of some artists.
