At the root of my artistry is a sculpture education, but I constantly commute between the two media, painting and sculpture.
The material in the sculpture is one of the most important factors in my works. It constitutes the work's DNA, it limits with its properties but conforms to my will. By combining similar parts into a whole, the sculpture itself takes shape under my influence. As everything in us and in the rest of nature is structured.
In recent years, I have dealt with the material corrugated cardboard as a DNA. Its rigidity but at the same time its flexibility is an asset to what I want to achieve in my forms. The form must, to some extent, be allowed to develop by itself, become what it is meant to be, out of my control, an interaction between me and the laws of nature.
Most often, the final form is associated with a primordial form, an intermediate between plant and animal, something that may have existed and or died out before it was discovered.
I want to highlight the disaster that is going on in our nature. Caused by our resource-demanding need for control in today's ecological system. Where man blindly rushes forward to cover his needs, on the road to self-destruction, forgetting his origins.
