“My research aims to find a balance between volume, form and space by emphasizing emptiness rather than mass. Inspired by Brancusi, I also continually seek the essence of life through organic lines and shapes.

These organic forms draw the air as an ethereal calligraphy subtly playing with texture, color and the ever-changing reflections caused by light.

The combination of classic and avant-garde materials such as steel, brass, aluminium and new materials such as Krion (acrylic stone) and carbon fibre allows me to articulate interior and exterior spaces with different levels of intimacy.

My sculptures are like a spiral: they move upwards, suggesting both physical and mental growth and ideas of purity and asceticism through minimal objective presence.

And in this sense, interaction with the viewer is important as he becomes part of the sculpture and engages in a challenging introspective dialogue in which he can recognize himself.

I have always been attracted to the monumentality of Anish Kappor, the essentialism of Donald Judd and the atmospheric installations of James Turrell. They all inspired me to articulate a dialectic of the eternal and the ephemeral, emptiness and fullness, light and darkness…

I feel that my work of art is a metaphor for the individual and his search for freedom, emancipation and self-realization.”
