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, rispettati l-pjaneti / vegetations u l-annimali, -konsegwenzi ta inkursjoni raġel; prijoritajiet inapplikabbli tiegħu, il tniġġis, l-tħassir u l-ħtieġa pront biex jerġgħu joħolqu l-haven ladarba tad-dinja omm.
The focus here is on the smallest unit of the marauders, which is one-person i.e, l-individwi fil int u jien. 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.
għalhekk, the advice to learn from the animal species, li huwa l-kontenut partikolari ta 'dan il-esebizzjoni, sar wieħed mill-miżuri korrettivi akbar importanza. It is quite important to pay attention, li tisma 'u biex tara mal-innoċenza tal-tfulija u sinċerità qabel esperjenzi adulterati tal-adult li. 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. Dan ir-rimedju għalkemm jista 'jkun potion morr, iżda dan huwa billi li l-tabib ġewwa fina se tittaffa l-uġigħ self inflicted.
Hence, the highpoint of this exhibition the skulturi annimali Metalmorphosis hija l-interazzjoni bejn il-telespettatur u l-skulturi annimali mibnija magħmula prinċipalment minn partijiet miksura / tintrema mekkaniċi magni: viz their curiosity, l-iskoperta u l-eċċitament meta jiskopru l- "ħajja" bejn il junks "mejta" metall mormija u l- "Għajxien" skulturi annimali dinamiċi li welldet li sa dakinhar jgawdi status elevat ta ilha ġabra connoisseurs.
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.
Barra minn hekk, dawn it-titoli satirical divertenti li għandha tendenza li tagħti kapriċċ imġiba umana u pranks għall- "siwi" annimal suppost simili "Ab'oja gbooro" (tarbija ħbiberija) – KANGAROO, huwa li jsalvaw nisa tagħna li f'daqqa waħda jsiru hekk trasportatur misjuqa lejn l-negliġenza ta 'kariga dmir maternità tagħhom, -ġuf ta 'teżori blissful b'hekk taħfir kultura dar virile ... filwaqt li "yera Olofofo"(off-satellita) 2 GIRAFFE conspiring jisfruttaw huwa li tiskoraġġixxi taħdidiet bla bżonn tal-ġenb żgħar, li jistgħu jkunu jwasslu għal suspetti u tixrid ta 'demm mhux meħtieġa.
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, water, 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.
