Arts of Ground

 

Earth where living and inanimate beings exist; can be likened to a large canvas. The views created by nature with their own instruments on this canvas; qualified miraculousness and admirable. The image shaped with; the wind, the storm, the rain, the hail, the snow, the sun, the cold, the heat; those who tried to do better and more beautiful; couldn’t go beyond imitation. Nature, despite human and involve human's actions, continues to sign its name on the canvas.

Realized that human add their own interpretation on their environment when they alone and focus only on nature. To see these, it is enough to look from the height level to the ground.

What nature has laid these views on the ground, under our feet is possible to qualify as a work of art. Because these work created by nature as a gesture, have a developing and changing character like art of installation.

The work that you see in the exhibition includes the photographic testimony of the works of art that Mother Nature laid under my feet.
