The main themes Paraskevi Ferentinou works upon are the dynamics of communication, the invisible aspects of social relationships, and the projection of human desires upon objects. She uses various media, majorly collages and installations, emphasizing the strength of synthesis as an autonomous technique for producing creative ideas. She invites the spectator to enter a space of innuendos, employing an abstract view of minimal frameworks, nevertheless rich in meanings.
