"Burnlife" - Descrizione e Spiegazione

"Burnlife" - Description and Explanation

Description: To make this sculpture we used 3 fallen branches and a recycled fir base. At first we cleaned and worked the branches, then finished with 3 different colors. The irregular and broken base has been treated on all sides with hand work, and then finished with a reddish wax. The branches were then attached to the base.

Meaning: "Burnlife", the life that burns and that is burning. Trees are the lungs of our planet and are slowly collapsing due to our human activities such as pollution, deforestation and fires. According to the FAO, more than 420 million hectares of forest were lost worldwide from 1990 to 2020. The damage is priceless. A world without trees has no life, it is bare and is only dipped in warm tones closer to the resemblance to Mars than to our planet. With this sculpture we tried to represent the embrace of 3 dry, cut and burnt trees, deprived of life and their natural colors. A hug that smacks of pity, helplessness and suffering, towards the brutality of human activities. The 3 trees are fixed to an arid, dry and cracked ground, a symbol, in this case, of the ever increasing drought in the world, caused by climate change.
