All that has aroused amazement and wonder over time has created a desire for possession in man.
First of all Nature, so indispensable for our life, has provoked in man a curiosity so passionate and blind, to be transformed into ambition to discover and tame all that surrounds us.
The control that man has expressed through the collection is much more than love for knowledge. We do not just admire the beauty of nature, we want to own it. Under the guise of love for study and research, entire museums of natural history have been created, where instead of life, death is celebrated.
It is inevitable: the desire to possess the beauty of nature clashes with the need to stop it and therefore kill it: in the very moment in which it is possessed, it is lost.
Art can be an alternative to this contradiction. With glass, I can celebrate beauty and life, study its details and majesty, without disfiguring beauty and interrupting the flow. The trophy is no longer an act of death but of creation.
As in a modern cabinet de curiosités, I exhibit my collection of animal artworks, and the act of realization exalts conquest and knowledge. The moment is immortalized and beauty no longer has to struggle against the passage of time.
