Foresta, a group of leaf-like glass sculpture series, roots from artist’s Felekşan Onar’s love of nature and its unconditional power. Although Onar lives in a city of over 15 million residents, namely Istanbul, she has made a piece of the forest close to the Black Sea her family’s home where she is able to embrace the nature daily. Recurrent trips to Africa and time spent there, proved to her time after time, the authentic power of earth and its inhabitants. As sun rises each day and nature wakes up to yet another day, there is always sundown. There is life and fatality for each existence whether you are a being as complicated as man or as simple as a leaf..
Foresta light sculptures are a collaboration with Les Ateliers Courbet, a design gallery in New York.
