Mild Pain Guarantee series can be seen as post-apocalyptic, where nature reclaims dominion from humankind. It leaves behind only scattered fragments of society and technology as evidence of humanity's once-dominant presence.

Marik Lechner's compositions are devoid of personal narratives; they are an embodiment of nature's forces at play with humanity. He resides and creates amidst an untamed orchard, a place where the omnipresence of nature has long been part of his daily existence. The isolation brought about by the pandemic and the ever-escalating political climate crises in Israel resonates deeply with him.

Over the past four years, Marik finally found the path to manifest this vision. The timing seems serendipitous, as he embarked on this journey as an artist seasoned by other mediums, eager to translate his ideas into textile form. This fusion of experience and fresh curiosity defined his approach to tapestry-making.
