Year of construction: 2021
The work entitled “Indifference” aims to highlight some unhealthy aspects of contemporary society.
The visual aspect and the orientation that evokes the ornithological figure in the foreground reflect the total disinterest in what is happening behind him, a quarrel caused by futile reasons.
Never as today is there a need for altruism, the human being needs more empathic interactions and generosity.
The eyes of the three birds are embellished by the black Spinel, symbol of an unhealthy vision of society, while the octahedra of red Spinel and the inserts of blue lolitas are camouflaged among the feathers of the birds as if they were insects.
Two small Moldavite stones, red and yellow amber, positioned on the leaves and trunk of the painting, respectively symbolize the water of the Vltava river and the return to nature as a fossil resin.
The light spots on the leaves are enriched with a thin layer of pure gold leaf.
