I am deeply captivated by primitive art and ancient craftmanship, viewing them as a source of my inspiration. At the heart of my work is an awe for nature that primitive art embodies. I use bronze, a seemingly hard and cold medium, to convey the warmth, safety, and vitality found in nature. As I am deeply concerned with the visual surface of my work, I also spend considerable time experimenting with chemicals to transform the initial casting of bronze into intricate visual landscapes. In primitive art, there’s no clear distinction between the man-made and the natural. Instead, they merge, creating a world full of spirit.
