Totem

Ghassan Zard

Combining polished wood, aluminum and raw steel, Zard creates a bestiary of forms, interpreting the anatomy of reality to recreate a personal mythology. Beyond the shape, something tries to come to the surface, the naked wood, full of life, is stapled with a rigorous but intermittent violence. It seems to contain a body in the making, a tacit entity yet extremely present, waiting in the heart of every piece.
