Below is a copy of the artist’s statement

“The Eden Before Us”

The theme of this exhibition as plainly as it suggested refers to the pure state of planet earth before the advent of the man species, Wahrung der Planeten / Vegetation und die Tiere, die Nachwirkungen des Menschen Einfall; seine verlegt Prioritäten, die Verunreinigungen, der Zerfall und die prompte Notwendigkeit, neu erstellen, die einst Zufluchtsort der Mutter Erde.

The focus here is on the smallest unit of the marauders, which is one-person i.e, die Individuen in dir und mir. Hopping that this would not only generate a conscious sanity in self but also in relative relations to others in the environment that envelopes our existences.

Deshalb, the advice to learn from the animal species, , die die eigentümliche Inhalt dieser Ausstellung ist, wurde zu einer der größter Korrekturmaßnahmen. It is quite important to pay attention, zuzuhören und mit der Unschuld der Kindheit und Aufrichtigkeit vor verfälschten Erfahrungen des Erwachsenenalter sehen. Thus the Almighty, the Beneficent has spoken through the scriptures“go ye and learn from the ant…” to correct our maladies when we had failed our prophets. Dieses Mittel kann aber eine bittere Trank, aber das ist, mit dem der Arzt in uns die selbstverschuldete Schmerz zu heilen.

Daher, the highpoint of this exhibition the Metalmorphosis Tierskulpturen ist die Interaktion zwischen dem Betrachter und den Tieren aufgebaut Skulpturen hauptsächlich aus gebrochen / verworfen mechanischen Maschinenteilen: viz their curiosity, die Entdeckung und die Aufregung, wenn sie das "Leben" zwischen den "toten" verworfen Metall Dschunken und die 'Living' dynamischen Tierskulpturen sie gebar zu entdecken, um die bis dahin liegt auf einer Anhöhe Status war ein Kenner Sammlung.

This by extension would exert a subtle pressure on the need to pay significant attention of care & sharing to those that life situation has made hopeless, Inmates of the motherless, the juvenile/ reprimand homes, ably here represented by the pick-up metal junks and to whom certain percentage of the proceeds from this show will be donated… The fortunate one should readily supports the less privilege to bring forth a glow their buried/ hidden ingenuity to the grace of humanity, then the treasures of our infinite depth with be revealed onto our eyes.

Furthermore, wie amüsant satirischen Titel, die für die menschliche Verhaltens Laune und Streiche auf die angeblichen "wertlos" Tier wie 'Ab'oja gbooro' geben tendenziell (Babyfreundlich) – KANGAROO, ist es, unsere Frauen, die plötzlich so Träger auf die Pflichtverletzung Beitrag ihrer Mutterschaft angetrieben werden prop, die Gebärmutter der seligen Schätze so Kollabieren eines virile Hause Kultur ..., während 'Olofofo yera'(Aus Satelliten) 2 GIRAFFE verschworen ein Exploit ist, um unnötige kleinen Seiten Gespräche entmutigen, die zu Verdächtigungen und unnötiges Blutvergießen führen können, werden.

And the “Adigboluja” (Abraham’s ram) is to encourage us to face whatever situation with bravery and to surmount the assailant with a perfect victory…

All of these and more are meant to redirect man’s conscious self from the prevailing irate mad rush for material wealth when the spiritual suffers… or why would individuals be competing in building houses in tens to encage his body knowing fully well that the body’s utmost bed is 6ft by something beneath the earth’s surface and a relics for the ants… or of perverted justices when laws are made to gag the poor while the riches and the wicked are looting in billions and trillions (‘wobia’ scavenger – wild boar) knowing fully well that the stomach only need 1/3 of its capacity each for food, Wasser, and air…but rather ‘pompous diet, a sick heart and a sick bed is always the most hunted and the most purchase, sickening the earth…

Let’s give the earth her green that we may shade under her canopy, that warmth from her bosom may once again radiate a fresh energy of purposeful purpose from within us to be able to truly recreate the desired blissful threshold of our haven.
