Honey Crypto celebrates the sweet sensuality of Man and Nature, and the magical power of healing wounds. Kusuda finds his inspiration in the golden glow of the sun that's just about to disappear behind the horizon, and, like a ball of dripping honey, has a magnetic attraction on Man and Animal. What matters for Kusuda is not only the enticement and appeal that comes with this attraction, but also the energy that is freed when this force dissipates. Energy that reveals what was hidden, that loosens what seemed to be closed in; energy that gives new life to that which we had lost or had forgotten.
