“My sculpture concerns man’s relationship to society and the boundaries of existence. It combines my love of line, texture and narrative. I try to give the figures and structures a timeless quality, textures suggestive of both ancient ruins and inner landscapes. The work reflects on the temporal passages of life, the way moments become memories fixed in our souls.”
