Macrocosm and Microcosm

Posted on

Macrocosm and Microcosm are series of works by Ali Hamzah a.k.a Alidestroy that represents his cosmological perception of interpersonal and intrapersonal relationship. Macrocosm portrays the connection between human, another life beings, unseen future, and universe which is metaphorized in a form of deformed body parts. The six paintings coherently illustrate the interpersonal Рexternal conflicts that are percieved by my sense and mind.

Microcosm or the internal conflicts portrayed that symbolizes body and mind as “flask”, a fragile container of ego, thoughts, and emotion that gets mature as we breath and grow through time. This ideation is thus manifested into four handmade ceramicware colorize through oxidation process. These series deeply rooted in imperfection and fear of something out of his safety zone.
