Lazuli Art Gallery (a Fair Trade Gallery of Primitive Art which also curates contemporary exhibitions of both local and international artists in winter ) is launching the first collaborative exhibition of father & son, Paul & Thomas Scerri, of sculptures in different mediums this November in Victoria Gozo.
Paul & Thomas Scerri work on the theme of our environment, both ecological and social/political. Paul, by pursuing his work to represent today’s society in his ceramic sculptures ,« a society built on apathy, ignorance, greed and the love of power. Traits that are destructing our ambiance, our characteristics and robbing us of our identity. The sitting position of the sculptures indicate an attempt to dialogue, a discussion to cure this socio-economic malady”.
Thomas Scerri ‘s project was instigated by the sad situation of a great number of trees being sacrificed due to construction of roads, apartments and bad pruning. Trunks from the actual trees that suffered this slaughter were used in this body of work, letting them dictate the final form of the sculptures. Again, there is the contrast between the organic and the manmade – a dichotomy which is addressed frequently in his work.
Exhibition open from 17th November till Sunday 9 December 2018.
