Inspired by Italian renaissance paintings and protests of the people of Gaza at the border with Israel, the work connects classic images of human gestures and landscape views, to contemporary attraction to news images, beauty, and blood. Desire for liberation, nature rejuvenation and a young girl, merge and form a mysterious, dark and colourful audio-visual scramble.
