Statement

Sculpting provides an imagery where I can present my ideas and beliefs. It is a way to record my emotions. I would like to see my work as a philosophical journey through the essential elements of life. Sculpting is an act of giving for me.

The human figure is the main source of my work. For me, sculpting is the aesthetic appreciation of beauty. But beauty can be formed out of ugliness as long as it is presented poetically.

To me art is beautiful if it is simple and quiet. I sculpt ideas without details that obscure the art’s imaginary attributes; one must leave room for interpretation.

There is always a call for the realization of an idea and I know why I am making it but the result is unknown, hand has its own dreams.

Installation art is a powerful way of presenting ideas and declaring statements with the potential to reach more people. It is fresh and daring, that is why I am interested in them.

Printing helps me convey my ideas in an immediate fashion. Yet, the results can be mysterious and surprising.
