«The vision of the artist can be primarily synthesized by «Doomed scape». Based on a dream, the work is a metaphor for the exploitation of natural resources in the economic-industrial capitalist era; the wrecking machine digging a basin, which grows ever larger, eventually effecting the core of the machine itself, and its consequent destruction. “Doomed scape” stands as a clear reminder of a savage exploitation that raids itself, sucking greedily at natural resources and consequently heading towards a failed future.«
