The human need growing into greed, has always been draining Nature’s “nectar”, but in the last 150 years the ravaging of the earth has become so obscure, like never before in human history. Prima Materia is a gloomy abstract representation of the rape of the Earth, presented as a woman, a mother goddess, soaring over destruction and enduring her childrens’ madness, which leads them to their demise. This Gaia, lingers like an exhausted female super hero in a cinematic, eye pleasing, moving image frame, perpetually bearing this insanity.
