Statement

My work is primarily based on an inquiry into the nature of matter.
In the process of working I approach the different materials with the intension to establish a form of dialogue with it. Into this dialogue I bring images that have certain acute bearing on my mind, images that inspire and keep me preoccupied with, notions that in most cases are not clearly defined. The material brings in its unique characteristics, its specific history, and amenability to diverse cultural interpretation.
