Art Description

Sculpture: polystyrene, Wax, Wood, Lights on Other.

i created this sculpture as part of my degree show exhibition at Bucks New University. The work is based on the burnt dead trees that I saw on a visit to the area north of Skradin where the war was fought. I named the work 'Ne Prilazite' referring to the text on signs in the area warning of land mines. The subject of the work is not only the devastation of the war in Croatia but more broadly the devastation man has wrought on the natural world through environmental disasters as well as war. Since I created this work in 2009 the world situation has only gotten more cricical.
