The inviting possibilities of the human figure and the random narratives it offers are the endless source of my work. Some of these narratives who stay with me eventually find a way to coexist in my work together with my own perceptions.
To me art is beautiful if it is simple and quiet. I sculpt suggestions offering the viewers the opportunity to self-reflect and connect with them through their own experiences. I believe that a cold resemblance takes away the essence of the figure. Suggestions however allow better portraying a person.
Sculpting is a way to communicate for me, a way to record my emotions and perspectives. It is an act of giving.
The creation of art is a complex process which is a result of emotions, mind, and technical knowledge. Generally before I start a piece I only know the starting point, which is just the pure idea. I allow the ideas to live with me and mature for quite awhile. When it is time for their realization, I start. I still do not exactly know what the result is going to look like. There is always a reason and a call to make it, but the result is a mystery even though I know why I am making it.
Creating is exhausting, but at the same time relieving. I work mostly with clay, which responds to my hands but sometimes surprises me – hand has its own dreams. I stop when I see my idea in the sculpture and when a certain solidity and life is achieved within the sculpture. Then I wait. Time always demonstrates the strengths or reveals the weaknesses.
