Starfish Prime (2021)

Oil on canvas - 100 x 70 cm

The visible phenomena due to the burst were widespread and quite intense; a very large area of the Pacific was illuminated by the auroral phenomena, from far south of the south magnetic conjugate area (Tongatapu) through the burst area to far north of the north conjugate area (French Frigate Shoals). At twilight after the burst, resonant scattering of light from lithium and other debris was observed at Johnston and French Frigate Shoals for many days confirming the long time presence of debris in the atmosphere.

Oil on canvas - 100 x 70 cm

The most important monument in the Phrygian Valley is the  spectacular structure in Yazılıkaya and is referred to as the Midas Monument. It is a beautifully decorated façade, carved into the vertical rock dating back to pre-Hellenic times. Its appearance resembles an entrance to a temple, and it  has a niche is carved into the rock - the Phrygian Portal. The façade has a square shape with a side length of 16 meters. It is an imitation of the Phrygian megaron, a rectangular structure with a large, deep hall fronted by a much shallower anteroom or porch. The niche, carved into the rock, is surrounded by geometric patterns, evoking the maze. 

Triangle Worship (2021)

Oil on canvas - 100 x 70 cm

The triangle was first inscribed in stone petroglyphs over two million years ago by the ancestors of homo sapiens. The triangle is a natural shape reminiscent of the mountain peaks, and when inversed, it is a clear representation of the woman pubis and as such, it bears a trace of the symmetry axis. The triangle becomes the symbol of sex and fertility and transforms into a transcendental object ready to be worshipped on the altar. Natural laws are written in the language of mathematics. Its symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures. Without them, it is impossible to comprehend a single word.

The Last Tree (2021)

Oil on canvas - 100 x 70 cm

Long after all humans are gone, after the earth has become an unbearably hot planet, the trees are all gone. Somewhere, there is one lonely tree that has managed to survive. It is the Last Tree, the last possible source of food for the surviving phasmids (stick bugs). Their herds rushed to the tree that could have given birth to a new generation of climate-adapted offspring. But the voracity of the insects will not allow this to happen, even if it means their unavoidable doom. Like humans they are blinded by their immediate needs and satisfaction to understand they are destroying their last chance at survival.
