Artist Statement: I’m interested in shaping of matter through the activities of sculpting, from small forms to monumental realizations. I undertake tasks that are conceptual and experimental. I draw inspiration from phenomena /situation/ and the specific characteristics of matter. I listen to reality and bring up the intricacies contained in it, which I transform into my own language. In the works I have completed so far, I process the collected materials so as to emphasize their properties as well as to refer to their history or previous function / application. In doing this, I am constantly accompanied by a need of ordering and giving meaning to what man has abandoned and treated as waste. Although my work is based on abstraction, it contains an emotional element that refers to the human psyche and experience. I use materials such as recycled sponge, recycled paper, honeycomb cardboard, agrotextile, jute rope, styrofoam, Bee wax and what will fall into my hands. In addition, an important place in my creative work is foundry in such materials as: bronze, aluminum and cast iron.
