An ungoing art project by Raf Veulemans and Miraschi
In 2012 artists Raf Veulemans and Miraschi decided to make there sporadic collaboration into an ungoing art project. Both artists share a deep concern for the state of the world and specific the state nature is in.
The Skawager project brings the worlds of the two artists together and is sending out a strong message, making a statement, creating a consciousness and developing a conscious human.
Due to the increased power given to us through science and technology, we are learning how nature works – the gene, the atom, the brain. We are effecting our own evolution by everything we do. With these new powers, we can destroy our life support systems … or we can move toward a hope-filled future of immeasurable possibilities. The choice is ours (Barbara Max-Hubbard).
The artworks within the Skawager project are sometimes subtile and sometimes explicit, but never indifferent. Science, art and nature are drawn together in bio-assemblages. Paintings and etchings are added to complete the picture.
Like skavangers, the artists work with dead materials. Waste isn’t waste but the start of something new.
