Art Description

Sculpture: Plastic, Resin, Rubber, Environmental, Glass on Glass, Plastic, Other.

My artistic approach revolves around non-renewable energies that surround me. Instead of trying to illustrate these urban vibrations that influence me, I take the object imbued with stress and use it as the subject of my research. By putting these recycled items in the foreground, I try to bring out their metaphysical energy that connects them with human activity.

My motivation resides in the technical challenge that implies objects left behind. I remain in awe of the constructed object, imagined, invented, marked by wear and fatigue. Like an anthropologist, I am endlessly in search of traces left by Human. I use the artwork as a durable vehicle to present my research in a form that recall the collage.

In short, my work should allow both to satisfy an aesthetic expectation and also cause the viewer to question the object and its relationship to the urban world; it must create its own semantics, its own laws. I want to bring the viewer to think on the notion of back-and-forth between the immanent and the transcendent.
