SKAWAGER

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.
