Wall mounted, white relief. Painted paper mache on a plain canvas base. The organic composition is made of strips of paper mache, fixed on canvas, finished by white paint. The strips measure up to 30 centimeters in lenth and 20 centimeters in height. I see a comet hurtling through the earth’s atmosphere, just moments before impact. This work is inspired by the comet that impacted the earth 65 million years ago and caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, paving the way for the evolution of humans. Ironically, today, humans are the cause of the sixth mass extinction with many species already lost. The artwork uses D rings with a steel wire as hanging hardware. It is large but not heavy (approx.15 kg). Still, due to its size it must be handled by two people. Mounting hardware must be considered depending on the wall type. A screw with a screw plug is advised for brick or stone walls. If the wall is made of a wooden framework and plasterboard look for where the stud frame is and use two heavy duty J hanging hooks fixed to the studs. Drywall: If you know the drywall is robust you can use a special anchor for dry walls.

My work focuses on sculpted patterns. It's a human instinct to look for patterns in anything we see. Being able to recognize patterns is what gave humans their evolutionary edge over animals. Patterns make us feel comfortable. I like my work to be forceful and touchable, by giving it an extra dimension, height. The height also creates shadows which sometimes emphasizes the pattern while at other times, depending on the angle of the light, breaking it. The color of my work is usually white. White is a serene color that doesn't distract from the pattern while providing contrast for the shadows. Main theme in my work is motion but I also like to experiment with whatever inspires me, e.g. nature and geometric forms. My material of choice is paper mache. Like clay it can be molded in almost any form. But unlike clay it's light and strong, allowing it to be used in large, hanging wall pieces. The low weight, texture and smell of the material also make it very enjoyable to work with.
