Sourced From Mother Earth is a project by Syrian artist Fadi Yazigi that includes his latest bronze sculptures & reliefs On clay.
By using materials from nature, the artist creates very diverse and powerful works that reflect the personal tragedies and stories he’s witnessing in Syria, where he still resides. “Clay and bronze; both have the ability to converge. They’re similar to life in its solidity and fragility, continuity and lack thereof, flesh and shadow, life and death.” The artist says.
The “diary” tablets, as Yazigi calls his reliefs, convey movement & emotion and a unique & powerful vision of humanity. They include intimate scenes between a father & his children, a husband & wife and the like, but in the middle of these serene, happy images is the monster that has devoured everything.
“The Ball”, is the artist’s latest bronze sculpture & will be displayed for the first time on the occasion of Art Paris. It evokes time, the life cycle, or Mother Earth. Yet it also resembles a mine from World War II that may explode at any moment. The creatures around it are us, they hold our dreams, tragedies & destinies. They hold what little hope we have for some light and love”, Yazigi Says. “Mother Earth energizes me and constantly reminds me that amidst this rough time, I still have a purpose in this life.”
