Artist Statement

The hermetic theory suggests that all systems in the universe are parallel and composed similarly; From the atom to the solar system, forms resonate repeatedly in the different layers of existence. I find this theory activates most of my creative work. It is a gate through which I can explore the way emotions might be embodied in matter or form; The way the corporeal, mortal human body can be connected to the most sublime, celestial phenomenon.

I investigate ideas from different fields and disciplines: geometry, physics, chemistry, astronomy, philosophy, literature. I sample and reassemble them to reveal a new and different paradigm, one that can be perceived better through the senses. Thus, I want to ensure an honest representation of various phenomena by imitating them, rather than illustrating them; I do so by using techniques such as molding and casting, building kinetic mechanisms, and exploring natural materials and processes. 
In recent years I have been working with ceramic materials. I believe in these materials’ energetic level, in the way they echo powerful chemical processes that take place deep underground, alongside their delicate qualities. I find these qualities exist in the human body as well, so through these materials, I can investigate it better. 

I want to create sensory empathy with objects, one that can activate a deep, primal emotion; To create a physical place where the visible indicates the invisible, a place where hierarchies collapse and the homogeneous mass of stardust in which all things float – manifests itself.
