"The artist’s creations are portals into a sphere where his imagination is concretized."

Where stems of trees, aluminum and brass become conduits for the silent conversations. The aluminum pieces attached to the tree stems, resembling mushrooms, stand as symbols of growth, resilience and the quiet conversations that unfold beneath the forest canopy.

The walls, adorned with flat aluminum and brass pieces, present a visual symphony. Hilltops rise and fall, capturing the undulating landscapes of our natural surroundings, while clouds drift across the canvases, carrying the artist’s interpretation of the sea within their ethereal forms.. His hands, guided by an intimate understanding of the materials, mold and shape them into a visual poetry that speaks of the interconnectedness of all living things.

“Whispers of Nature” is an invitation to step into Ghassan Zard’s imaginative realm, where the boundaries between the man-made and the organic blur into a seamless tapestry. It beckons us to listen, not just with our ears, but with our hearts, to the whispers of nature that echo in each meticulously crafted piece.

As you explore this arboreal symphony, may you find yourself attuned to the silent conversations that resonate within the artistry of Ghassan Zard.
