‘I AM’    an Exhibition by PoukaI AM by Pouka


22 September – 14 October 2011

I AM is a series of 12 panels of oil on canvas; each canvas measures 1.5 x 2.1 m, giving a total size of 18 m long by 2.1m high.  I have completed 6 out of the 12 panels. The title “I AM” comes from the invisible, something who is and hasn’t been made and has always existed. The main body of the painting is our planet with it’s transformation through time, as we all know our universe started with the Big Bang and after the Big Bang, we saw the development of galaxies, stars, planets etc. Following that human ego of civilisation and path of no return, to our greatest technology achievements and supernatural intelligence and so called power. This leads us to build more power plants and gas pipes, and digging every corner of the earth, which is the only place designed for humans to dwell in; to send with no control or supervision, different spaceships and satellites out of our planet, causing instead a huge dump of wreckage in the atmosphere. That, in return will specifically be the end of our own existence. Reflecting the circle of life, the cause and effect, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, life and death.
