STATEMENT

Abstraction is my way to see and understand the world, and to create visual tales of the mind. My works reflect my interest in biological systems, their forms and connections, from molecules to urban systems. I use abstract language in order to explore mental images, memories, and emotions, to find patterns and understand connections. I explore the expressive potentials of materials, forms, textures, and the natural rhythms of lines, forms, and colors. 

My sculptures are inspired by organic forms, and are driven by my interest in volumes, movement, and textures, and in the free assembly of elements to create new forms. Starting from an idea or sketch I use materials as varied as industrial felt, wood, metal wire, papier-mache, and polymer clay to build the initial structure. My continuous dialog with the piece determines its final form, giving it the opportunity to develop in something different than the original idea.

The Cultural Landscapes series is inspired by my interest in the combined works of nature and man that result in alteration of the landscape and the evolution of cities. Cities seen as an evolving concept, an historical representation of human civilization, with the potentials of integration with the natural environment.

The Line series stems from my interest in exploring the potentials of the line as a form of expression, conveying thoughts, feelings, movement, time, our existence. In these works I combine oil painting and hand-printing techniques to explore the interaction between line and surface.
