Artist statement
As a sculptor, I'm fascinated by the physical world where everything is connected in a cause-and-effect
In my projects, I explore the sensory side of materials and their physical forces like gravity, flexibility,
balance and weight.
By using materials with different properties and placing them together in a fragile balance, I enhance
their unique characteristics, test their limits, and explore their possibilities. My favorite materials are
non-static, carrying an innate sense of movement in their DNA. These materials include elastics,
rubber, sponge, metal strips, bamboo strips, plaster, and round shapes
My installations are a result of a dialogue between the material and myself, rather than an imposition--I
prefer to play with materials and keep their role active.
