I am not a painter
I have said that to myself many times. Yet I always wanted to work the walls. The thing is that I found it difficult to have a real interaction with oil and canvas. Whenever I talked to the canvas, it was not responding, or it was responding so slowly, that I already had gone to another place more interesting.
I started working on sheet-metal almost by accident, but the material was responding, and I kept going always exploring new techniques.
I am not a propagandist
I don’t start with certain point of view. I have them but they should not dictate where I go with my production.
I believe in freedom of expression – and in the free interpretation.
I am an interactor
I interact with the material. I have a conversation, sometimes a fight, sometimes a love affair with the material and through this interaction the material takes me new places unimaginable before you get there. The work is not done before the material and I get to a mutual understanding, some sort of peace.
