Art pieces seek to transmit a message to the viewer. Whether it is a canvas, a sculpture or a delicate quilting patchwork, they are all willfully elaborated by their creator to share a message. Sometimes, in the art world, it is just beauty that is intended to be transmitted.
I believe beauty is an essential part of our daily life, as nature’s beauty has a positive impact on our daily life and is essential for our inner harmony and conscience. However, I also believe that the art world should seek to transmit more than just beauty.
In my opinion, art has always had a huge potential to spark the interest of people in different topics, and considering the environmental crisis of the 21st century, I believe it is more important than ever to spark the interest among people at all levels of society in safeguarding the environment for future generations.
My pieces seek to transmit a message beyond beauty per se, as they are created as an approach to bringing people closer to nature and seeking to raise public awareness broadly on environmental issues.
I believe man-made lifelike forms made out of environmentally friendly materials can beautify human living areas without having to damage the environment nor kill any life form.
No life form should die for the desire of humans to enjoy its beauty. I say no to taxidermy and ask you to do so too.
