Possibility of a Sea...
a story on rehabilitation and conservation of a sea... and of myself...
My journey in search for personal physical and mental rehabilitation (following 3 war injuries) brought me to the sea...
Led by my imagination, morals, and creativity - I started the long voyage of observation and learning, conservation, healing and improving of the tropical marine environment (reefs & shores) - in countries and islands in Southeast Asia and the South Caribbean (www.seedislands.org).
During my over 30 years of journeys and doing in this magical world of reefs, beaches and its surroundings - and among those who live next and of it: fishermen, scientists, tourists and (too much) "human destruction, abusement and arrogancy" - I collected the visions, colors, movements, and sensations, combined with observing and sensing the process of the disappearance of this magical world the reasons to it and the sea's nature self healing, overcoming and rehabilitating...
My works are telling this story...
Printed on various materials (Tempered glass, HD Metal ChromaLuxe, Dibond and Perspex) – my works are combined with natural rocks and structured as underwater installments for exhibition, rehabilitation of the marine life and protecting the shore, applied and integrated into interior and outdoor design (furniture, walls, gardening, and pools) and presented in galleries and exhibitions...
...and I do this art while continuing to dedicate my best humble capabilities to conserve and "heal" the wonderful marine environment…
