Artist’s Statement

Deeply influenced by my surroundings, my work is a reflection of impressions different environments leave on me. Since moving to Canada’s West Coast and it’s overcast winter skies, I have become fascinated by light. I like to study how it reflects on surfaces, the shadows it can produce & its capacity to uplift our spirits.

My recent artistic practice has been mostly dedicated to sculpting abstract representation of clouds. I create kinetic sculptures in which I incorporate LEDs. By using reflecting surfaces, I play with light and also with the moving shadows the artwork generates.This tension between light and shadows is a never ending source of inspiration and it pushes me to always explore the possibilities further.
