“The straight line is godless”, said Hunderwasser. This phrase has stayed with me, and I can recall it every time nature confirms it through its perfection. It is these manifestations of nature that I admire, I observe, and that impress me, and fragments of which I later try to convey using my hands. I begin by making small sketches, fleeting ideas of whatever draws my attention. Completed forms wander around my mind, forms of shells, flowers, leaves, at times even minimal or shapeless organic forms which I build asymmetrically. My process never follows a straight line from concept to completion. An idea leads to discovery of new forms which then turn and transform my process. As the material changes under my hands my thinking evolves, a creative circle. My main materials are silver and paper. Silver is a tough "companion". At times I transform it until it follows my sketch, or at other times I let it show me the way through its own pathways. For the purpose of antithesis but also for balance I use paper, a material which feels as if it holds me by the hand. The paper fibers create an environment where I play with the colours of nature and form the canvas on which I narrate my stories.
