Pares Mallis with her painting “Pool I" 2003

Pares Mallis brought some new energy to the Jill Yakas Gallery when she exhibited her series of Marriage Boxes in a group show in 1999. Her boxes, with titles such as Meat Market, Virgin Bride, The Ceremony, The Bible Says sometimes amused, sometimes annoyed, but generally provoked discussion among visitors to the show.

By 2003 she had moved on to water. 'H20 'was the artist's first one person show in Athens with Jill Yakas. The exhibition of paintings and ceramic sculpture presented imagery inspired by water microbiology, the sea and swimming pools

This body of work fictionalizes water's mysterious qualities and calls attention to the importance of water as a life support. Of her 'water packages', ceramic constructions inspired by Minoan art, the artist said:

The water packages represent the future of water.. With man's continuous disregard of one of our greatest resources clean water will become a rarity. These packages are my version of unspoiled water.
