Sculpture (MA)

A constant flow of whys and how’s followed by the material game in search of a higher and hidden self. A stream of various thoughts followed by their echoes…

Sometimes the work lets me in, and other times it takes from me – my dreams, forms and memories.

The sculptures and installations appear futuristic, yet the techniques I use are essentially traditional. 

I am a collector and translator. I collect experiences and translate their language into the language of immersive environments. 

I expose my vulnerability to the surrounding where the work can expand and morph. But where is the Where? It is a hidden landscape I must discover. A Möbius road with a twisted surface and sharp edges lead me to the opposite of the same. 

The walk is challenging, dangerous but thrilling. From the village to the steep cliffs of the canyon just to find the hidden cave where You told me to wait…. Wait until the sound gets thicker and my eyes adjust to the new light….

The Phantom is a project that is currently being developed. I am investigating various ways to hold the pieces together and testing different metal structures that could suspend or hold them in space.

"One senses a powerfull undertow of struggle. Yet it is not the struggle of a work against something outside itself, but rather the struggle of something within the work, unmanifested, trying desperately to break out, and constantly finding its emergence “blocked” by the existing, outward form and language of the piece. This blocking of “something within” …has to do with the frustration of a desire for cathartic release into some supremely positive state of being, where meaning is transparent…"
