Artist Statement: I make sculpture from the stone quarry of
human subsistence and build a sacred space where I am telling
the one and only story of human being - Joseph Campbell called
it MONOMYTH - in letters of figurative sculpture.
It is presented in a purposely designed dark magenta colored
„chapel", with four rooms: the MONOMYTH BLOCK. There my
sculpture is theatrically set in scene by light, noise and smell.
I have the heart of a poet. I transform pain into blitheness and
scarcity into wealth by the alchemistic power of sculpture.
My figurative sculptures are in traditional material and craft
(marble, plaster, bronze, precious metal, fine wood etc.) and
interpret ancient themes of mankind in a personal viewpoint of
