Throughout my work, I try to embrace the fluidity and organic forms found in nature. I am interested in the harmonious fusion of abstraction and biomorphism. I am also inspired by the inherent qualities of the material I work with.
I aim to express movement, as if my sculptures were frozen in a moment of transformation. I like to think of them as physical souvenirs of an evolving landscape ; hills rolling under the wind, ocean waves flowing in a rhythmic pattern, rocks weathering in a riverbed.
I try to capture the essence of organic forms in my sculptures.
I see my work as an analogy for the unbreakable bond between human beings and the environment, embodying a sense of harmony and unity. As such my sculptures interact with their surrounding space, inviting the viewer to engage with them from different perspectives.
