My sculptures vacillate between malleability and stability giving a tangible form to my feelings, memories and ideas. Energy flows directly into each piece incorporating the spirit and desire, emerging emotions and thoughts as each piece develops.
The harmony and balance dictate to me how to move and specify when a project has taken its final form. Starting from my admiration in organic forms, I create sculptures inspired primarily by nature. I want the static of the material to come into conflict with the mood of the sculpture to wave in space, creating illusions.
It is difficult to resist the charm of the seascape and not be inspired by the feeling that liven you up. The element of the sea, the beauty of the seabed, as well as the pace and movement of waves mold images deep inside me and through the clay they get substance.
Balance and harmony dictate to me how to move and specify when a project has taken its final form. Regarding the question as to how I understand when my work is completed, my answer is when I feel that all the forms, curves and aspects communicate; to sum it up, when I feel a sense of calm and deep piece viewing my work.
I am mainly inspired by organic forms, but also by anything around me that reveals a natural contradiction. It is difficult to resist the charm of the seascape and not be inspired by the feeling that liven you up. The element of the sea, the beauty of the seabed, as well as the pace and movement of waves, mold images deep inside me and through the clay they get substance. I want the static of the material to come into conflict with the mood of the sculpture to wave in space, creating illusions.
The forms communicate each other in order to tell you a story. The story is based on your feelings, which release in a view of an abstract form that you are not able to completely understand at first glance. My purpose is every person to create its own story based on its personality and influences.
The view of a sunset, the sound of the waves, a perfume in the air and so many others, emerge feelings that you cannot control or explain. My point is to give form to my emotions, memories, experiences and subconsciously to emerge your feelings. The art is a timeless medium of expression where you can communicate without words.
My aim is to imagine yourself tiny, moving through the forms which succeed each other. My forms is like labyrinth where you cannot find the path for your journey, unless you peer into it and let yourself be part of it. Absorb the rhythm of the waves from any angle, drift softly and let your thoughts be all over the place.
