Artist Statement

My sculptures are the materialization of energy. The moment on where earth and sky connect; silence and music, balance and movement, emptiness and fullness. They are an instant of the dance between feminine and masculine.

The balance of my work manifests at the balance of our soul, at the moment on where our mind enjoy the symmetry and movement of the lightness and ethereal lines. We can read through them, the lightness of the eternal Being, the infinite universe, the constant change and impermanence of all that exists.
