Art Description

Sculpture: Plaster, Cement, Resin, Tempera and Acrylic on Wood.

The theme is Ocean Acidification another environmental and social problem which i like to talk about. Is a personal experience that makes me studying about Ocean acidification. I was living in a beautiful island in Indonesia and i saw that in few years the coral reef was almost disappear... My goal is to use my art to foster awareness of ecological and social problem.
I create a collection of different wall sculptures dedicates to this theme.
The acid water in our Oceans inspired me to dissolving sea shells using muriatic acid and photo-shooting them during the process to create a time-laps video, then, using a frame from the video i create an exact replica of the shell using plaster mixed with cement and other materials. For the other surface i used tempera, pigments, gold powder, silver powder, exhausted oil, gesso, cement and other material mixed together, then i dry it under the sun and covered with ice many times until the material mixed as i like. In the end i use a glass resine to recreate the water effect of the surface.
When you look at it, seems like to see the ocean but the poison one, polluted by chemical reaction, colours that i saw in a river in Shanghai.
