The Final Glow
Mixed Media 2017 

In THE FINAL GLOW series I aim to bring awareness to the catastrophic mass death of coral reefs, caused by environmental impact and rising water temperatures.The project itself and the colors are inspired by the final moments in long coral life - they release natural sunscreen as a protection, that causes corals to glow with the most vivid colors.

THE FINAL GLOW is a limited collection where each piece is a collage of real shapes and forms found in nature, after a long and complex procedure of solidification and coloration it becomes a unique collage sculpture piece.

The vibrant colors and reach textures juxtaposed to the flat black that is about to roll over… a grand finale... and death
