Artist Statement

My work combines sculpture with painting. The sculptures are made entirely out of paper recycled from my own household. The main shape is built in a dry technique and only the last few layers of paper are added in wet technique. Between the last few layers of paper, I sometimes polish the shapes with sandpaper. Colour is added at the last stage and in the very end, the whole work is sealed with a protective lack.


In my shapes I am re-imagining and re-shaping my motives, hoping to awaken awareness, understanding, and desire to protect our environment. I always look for equilibrium, for space, the connection between the inner and outer world, the energy that keeps it all together.


I create sculptures because I like tactile objects. With the protective coat I use on my work (last layer of lack), my artwork becomes tangible for everyone. I would like people to come closer to my work, hold it in their own hands, feel its texture. What sensations are being awakened?
