"I'm searching new ways to create paradoxical, graceful concrete sculptures.
Persisting in unfolding the spiritual hidden in matter is my main focus of
interest. Concrete has been bound to the building industry, considered to be the
symbol of lifelessness, petrification and weight. My intention is to disrupt our
everyday notion of this generally grey, industrial and tough substance. Airy,
porous, shiny and often green, gold or blue - freed from their inherent
heaviness - many of my sculptures are see-through and ornamental. They keep the
same attributes of industrial concrete, such as being weather resistant, and by
using a mixture of additives and chemicals, also improve concrete's ability to
be precisely moldable. Working with a robust, heavy-weight material, I create
large-scale objects with delicate details, constantly researching and
improving the technique, while being inspired by the presence of form and space
in one object."
