bio

 

“At first impression metal shows itself to be the material of consistency and solidity, but it is also the material resistant to any changes.
To create a sculpture from an unhewn block you have to employ a lot of energy and strength.
The creative process is the continuous confrontation of the artist with the material.
The essence of my work is this dialogue with the material reaching and exceeding its own limits.

The experimented resistance – the resistance of the object – is an essential character of the significant experience of personal truth.
With this exploration of the resistant opposite you can start a dialogue and experience yourself.”
