Artist's description

I create moving sculptures from precious metals, aluminium, copper, steel, acrylic and wood. Objects are fused onto carefully crafted rods balancing through space and time, interconnecting present and memory. My recent work focuses on opposites; combining the simplicity and precise nature of geometric forms with organic textures allowing nature to take control over time. Movement and reflection of light will draw new shapes transforming the aesthetic of the sculpture from a static object to an interactive installation.

Minimalism and Design as Art plays a dominant role in my artistic practice, drawing inspiration from the Modernism movement and in particular the Bauhaus aesthetic and its focus on form and function.
