Suspended Life

In my works I’m focusing on environment and the intimidating behavior of man against nature and animals, by extending the concept of nature in a surreal atmosphere I’ll try unify various concept in a multi-layered approach.

In continuation of the previous track of my works, in this series I have dealt with other aspects of environmental issues.

“Endangered Animals”

The loss is irreversible, and the human footprint is clear through it.

Suspension plays an important role in my works. Here suspension is an instant between being and vanishing. An instant that is stabilized.
