Out of the endless creativity of the Sea...
Pssibility of a Sea

 

a story on rehabilitation and conservation of a sea... and of a human being...

Israeli artist Amos Gazit’s underwater photography and artworks is an organic extension of his years-long rehabilitation from three serious war wounds which left him physically, psychologically, and morally shattered - The sea was the context of Amos’ rejuvenation.
 

He spent countless hours diving among coral reefs, walking along the shore, and meeting people whose lives and livelihoods depend on the sea and its environment - Studying and documenting the marine environment and participating in international efforts to rehabilitate it from the ravages of civilization.
 

Over 30 years, Amos has served as a member of various conservation and research organizations - primarily in countries and islands in Southeast Asia and the South Caribbean - and since 2006, in collaboration with the University of Illinois’s (UI) researchers - including Prof. Edward Feser, Prof. Bruce Fouke, and others - in the development and promotion of academic and research programs that combine ecological, environmental, economic, and urban development (https://www.seedislands.org).
 

Led by his imagination, moral values ​​and creativity, Amos has documented over the years the sights, colours, movement and sensations of the sea and its natural ability, and almost precisely, to undergo a process of self-healing of overcoming and regenerating from severe injuries, as Amos experienced.

Printed on canvas, tempered glass, aluminium, and rocks - His works are presented in exhibitions, galleries, applied in interior and exterior design (murals, furniture, gardens, and pools) and are integrated in an underwater instalment (built of natural rocks) that helps preserve and restore the marine and coastal environment.
 

His works have been exhibited in individual and group exhibitions in Israel, Italy and the United States, and have been published in articles, books and art sites around the world.
