In my artistic exploration, I find myself grappling with the perplexing notion of humanity's estrangement from nature. Throughout history, humans have existed in symbiosis with the Earth, yet as we progressively detach from our ancestral traditions, we find ourselves immersed in a paradigm of isolation and environmental degradation.

In this series of artworks, I delve into the intricacies of my relationship with the natural world, endeavoring to shed the layers of indoctrination propagated by capitalist ideologies. Utilizing tactile mediums such as charcoal and sculpting with cardboard, I aim to imbue my creations with a tangible connection to the earth, emphasizing the importance of tactile engagement in fostering a deeper understanding of our environment.

Central to my artistic narrative are the depictions of humanoid figures grappling with the repercussions of contemporary ecological crises, from the poignant imagery of melting ice caps to the stark realities of food wastage. Through these portrayals, I invite viewers to contemplate the process of unraveling societal conditioning, advocating for a return to our organic roots and a reintegration with the natural world.

Ultimately, my art serves as a poignant reminder of the imperative to rekindle our connection with the soil beneath our feet, to heed the silent wisdom of the plants that sustain us, and to reclaim our rightful place as custodians of a harmonious coexistence with the natural world.
