Biography

"I think that every person makes an invisible drawing while living, with their actions, moving through life."

INSPIRATION

I am concerned with universal messages, ancient, and rooted in history, but also unchangeable objects, facts, and emotions. The passing moment, crowded cities, natural stainlessness. Movement. The constant flux of the world, united in its intrinsic interconnections, universal relevance where what appear as opposites come together in one.

Human, animal form, and other shapes that we are all familiar with are important in my work. I use these forms as a reference point to shape a body of abstract sculpture or painting. Realism in my work has a strong connection with abstraction. When it comes to drawing, I love the freedom of joining all these lines together in a seamless flow.

I always thought that every person makes an invisible drawing while living, with their actions, moving through life.

PROCESS

Every piece of plexiglass is cut, heated, and shaped to follow the form of a body. In the process, I am using various disciplines, from human and animal anatomy, to design, welding, metal shaping, and plexiglass modeling, connecting to the implementation of light in the end.

I do not define my work exclusively as that of a sculptor, draftsman, or painter, as I am always connecting all three by finding my way through this symbiosis.

While working on two different projects, to keep the freshness, I often switch to another medium but without any loss of direction and precision.

A find a balance in this with time because when I am working with the sculpture, I feel closer to the concrete, real world, which helps ground me after the imaginative wanderings of painting and drawing.
