Regardless of the material I am using, the same themes seem to always force themselves to the surface. Everything comes in a very automatic fashion, like energy, and I can not deny these forms. Horned, smooth, playful, wary, they beg for life.

These forms and ideas are about the emergence of something, or it's disappearance, they are in the act of changing and are about history and the present.

I suppose it is a story I am telling, it feels like myth, the use of marble speaks of the past, the history of art – it's a bridge – the forms are young, looking longingly back...


returning very soon!
