Description


Hossein Mahjoubi
I have always asked myself when can mankind live the short period of their lives in the world without all these troubles and turbulence ?
The evolution of mankind as the superior being among all creatures, has witnessed numerous horrifying destruction of nature and elimination of its own kind and, in the end, itself and this has been the flow of history to date which seems to be taking an eternal form. It is right here within this process that I have always asked myself, and must keep asking , where on the face of this vast scene of existence is this creature heading?
My works over the last decades cry out this question which has haunted the furthest corners of my mind: hey you , who have named yourself human , how far and how long you intend to do this huge amount of destruction ? Where on this old, foul world have you left behind wisdom and virtue, making your life, and that of others, unbearable?
The question is this: why have we remained ignorant of the basics of living despite all these inventions and discoveries? Other species, whom we have named animals and looked at with humiliation, in spite of all the violence inherent within them as a result of their struggle for survival, live with their kind and others in peace and leave themselves passionately to the flow of life, not like us who are destroying the planet with our consumerism and technology addiction, demolishing numerous species only in a few decades.
Unfortunately , the outcome of all the marvelous achievements and inventions are overtaken by the lords of power and wealth who trod the road to war and decadence, not towards the happiness of mankind.
In our modern , mechanical life we are witnessing that humans are engulfed by various kinds of psychological and mental disorders and if this manner lasted
more, perhaps natural life as such would leave our wonderful earth and make it deprived of the beauty of life like other planets.
My works manifest the very important point that with no doubt, only with the contribution of great men of thought and by the help of science , a new man will come into this world who can live a life void of all the vices. This is how the mankind is able to reach the lofty position they deserve and this is the scene where eternal friendship and immortal ideals will unveil.
