Yellow gold plated brass.

All my pieces are built on the principal mechanism of psychological defense known as ‘substitution’. This method is used to have a traumatizing experience displaced by an accessible one. I do this by working on the senses in an uncommon way. Religion is my theme. A traumatizing experience for a lot of people and I was not an exception. I am drawing a parallel between the behavioral motives of religious people and the behavioral motives of cats aiming to find common points. With their unconditional love cats are famous for their unlicensed healing skills. In my objects, I relive religious experiences and rites through the prism of the cat’s behavior.
