Artist’s Statement

Found invented and intervened objects are brought together in an arrangement that reveals and underlines the process of making art, by pointing out the moments of decision-making and hesitation, within each and every work. These installations of sculptural objects, introduced in a state of transformation or as carriers of the energy of this transformation, present an oblique viewpoint of art; the disclosure of intention and, at the same time, the doubtfulness of a gesture. An eccentric discourse; a conceptual panning between what is and what might be, where time is conceived as the duration of a transformation and space as the place for contemplation and reassessment of our constructed reality; where art happens simply by encountering its own existence.
