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.
