The thematic top of relief series were two more art works: “Escape” and “Different Vision”. They both were outcome of hard and intensive work as on the concept, so on the material.
The relief “Alien” belongs to the same “cultural” art series. But it refers to different, more social distinctions between nations, people. In spite of jellyfish and that ambiguous creature live in one space, in water, we know jellyfish much better. And there are still many unidentified creatures in the underwater world.
The second attempt to the Relief Series were also two works – Baltic & Mediterranean Sea. As on the first two works, the jellyfish on these also symbolize civilizations, nations and cultures, but as the names refer, we talk about another parts of the world.
Zurab Bero used to work only on sculptures before. But as he has mentioned in his interviews many times, he always tries new materials as well as mediums. So came in 2009 new type in his Art – reliefs created from epoxy resin. The first artpieces were Baltic Sea and Caspian Sea, created almost simultaneously. The whole background of both artworks are covered with mentioned material that gives the feel of deep water. It seems like a real water with glance, depth and mystery, though this is oil material. As a relief on those patterns are designed two different kind of jellyfish – one on each art piece.
Terra Nova was a group show, held in the end of 2009 in the Art Gallery Wedding (Galerie Wedding), Berlin. “Terra” means the planet Earth, “Nova” – new. It was a delightful exhibition dedicated to the four elements water, fire, air and earth. Elements that determine our lives and have vital importance for us.
