In my research I often try to crystallize everything which is ephemeral and fleeting through a practical approach to the matter, which allows me to cleave to reality and grasp it.

Between the physical and the abstract, nature and the artificial, my research aims – rather than creating single objects – to make their inside shape and images emerge. Rather than being static or frontal, their features are accomplished thorough evocations and semantic and visual shifts.
