Descrizione Opera / Biografia

Art Work:
Plastic Army: Invasion
The ”Plastic Army” series is trying to address the issue of plastic waste in a playful and aesthetic manner.
The cycles are telling metaphorically and in linear order of the incursion of the natural enemies, the conquest of the landscape, the mutation of their inhabitants, the complete fusion to the dissolution of all natural elements.
The aesthetic depiction of these artificial installations thus serves as allegories of the deepest unaesthetic and unpleasant facts of catastrophic environmental pollution, using the example of plastic waste!
This first cycle is called: „Plastic Army: Invasion“
The pictures in detail:
Invasion sea: The theme of this picture is the arriving of the plastic armada
Invasion coast: The theme of this picture is the landing of the plastic troop
Invasion dune: The theme of this picture is the spreading of the plastic soldiers
This second cycle is called: „Plastic Army: Occupation“:
The first realized motif:
Occupation Stream: The theme of this image is the penetration of the landscape
