My work consists of a pro-longed journey through an imaginary post-apocalyptic world which conveys the overwhelming power of
nature. The constant appearance of ruins where civilizations have crumbled through time and the struggle of survival in the wasteland and the tribute to Romanticism and the attempt to resurrect sublimity.
Imagining “What will be new under the sun”, and observing The anxiety of Nature conflict with Human that transverse The power of wildlife and what remains as remnants of nature in the ruins.
Through exploring the fragility of our civilisation, my latest work utilises the apocalyptic wasteland as a form of salvation for the unblemished. It is an instinctive reflection of a personal encounter with a symbolic or sarcastic twist to position us as part of the
the narrative in a possible future while investigating the present phenomenon.
