I collect and recycle mostly what nature has discarded or what has been in contact with Earth over time. In addition to the “discarded nature”, I use clay and porcelain, naked – rarely glazed.
The aesthetics of nature is superior, but I am rearranging and staging an “awful & beautiful mix,” and I hope that the viewer will recognize nature in an uncomfortable distorted way that would initiate a process of thinking beyond the simple art-object. I try to arrange an earth-dialogue; to present and twist the obvious.
I am concerned about our interference with nature, and my projects are grounded on a quest to explore the effects of the extinction of thousands of species each year.
