Weapons transformed into symbols of hope.
The starting point of every sculpture is a war-related found object. It is incorporated into the work, along with symbolic forms and shapes created in a deceptively simple, poetic, and versatile way. Dichotomy between expression and content is enhanced by the choice of materials and techniques. The process aims to engage and address issues of memory and sustainability, while conveying, at the same time, an unostentatious yet powerful message of love, peace, and hope.
