STATEMENT

My sculptures are the outcome of my reflection on life and the chain of events that have led me to the present. I think about the choices I’ve made, the circumstances that have influenced them and the profound impact they have had on my life. Could it be said that my choices were inevitable? Was it all predetermined due to the environment I was born into, as well as the traits I inherited? My work is converting these thoughts into tangible representations using human figures.
