Here in San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic the Italian natural science alchemist was transfixed by the image of this abandoned Masonic Temple, with its vines and trees popping from windows and wrapping around its walls. To him, it symbolizes the inextricable connection of nature and the man made, with each alternately dancing with one another, and then trying to overpower the other. For those of you trying to prognosticate the outcome of that rivalry, we’ll venture a theory that in the end nature wins.

Inspired by the leafy takeover of this man-made temple of worship, Gola wanted to add leaves of his own. “For me this piece represent the dichotomy between the creative chaos of nature and the necessity of human beings to define the laws of the Universe. These are both part of nature.”

His latest installation is part of the Artesano Project, and Gola considers himself as a facilitator, a conduit of what is a pre-ordained takeover of this space by natural design.

“The Mother Goddess take back the space of the temple of the Great Architect of the Universe,” he explains as he strips down to his birthday suit to pose among the ruins and with his piece called “Sprout and Ruler.”

“The insertion of a human element is a way to bring inside the scene the Masonic rituals of a passing grade,” he says. “The nudity is a symbol for nature and paganism.”
