“I think art is a total thing. A total person giving a contribution. It is an essence,
a soul... In my inner soul, art and life are inseparable.” Eva Hesse
I am surrounded by materials and objects reconstructing themselves in a second-hand universe. Just as I migrated to England and adopted the language and cultural codes, the materials around me migrate from one medium to another. Their transformation is only disturbed or altered by potent creativity and natural destruction.
My work is a way of mapping and connecting with my environment during each moment of its existence. I work with the objects and materials around me, incorporating my own language into the process of reconstruction to present them as something related to my immediate experience. There is something more to life than the material, which can only be sensed in its absence. But being aware of it, in its absence, has the potential to change our perception of reality.
I work with latex, fibreglass and resin, often quite challenging materials. The resin has to be worked with while it is still viscous, then you must wait for it to dry. During this time, disturbances may happen. It echoes the relationship between time and the abstract body, the random, unwanted occurrences, the improvisation and the liberations. You have to try things out but maintain the knowledge that things may happen out of your control. It is an experiment of material and process, space and time.
I want my work to be part of an intuitive approach to space, in which the viewers are invited to form their own interpretations in an intuitive way. The sculptures and installations I make are characterised by their fragile, temporary and transitory state, and the relationship between them and the space they occupy should continue to be flexible and open. The art adapts to the space and the space adapts to the art and both adapt to the movement and intuition of the viewer. The space is an organism composed of other organisms. All leave their imprint on one another.
