Statement

Sculpture between creativity and nature

In may artwork you find sculptures of various materials, sometines more like an classical sculpture, other works are more close to landart.

The choose of material depends from the theme and the situation.

But the main theme of my artwork is the nature. In this context I`m looking for a way of esthetic exploration of nature accompanied by an phenomenlogical research.

What is the sense of sculpturing? It´s a way of transformation of the nature or oneself?

So I think sculpturing in the 20t and 21th century is like a modern history of alchemistry.
