The Art of Sculpting: Using Form to Express the Formless
My work as a sculptor seems to manifest in different physical aspects: from geometrical abstraction, to minimalism, to organic and figurative subjects. In effect, I am not part of any specific way to express creativity. It is important for me to materialize essence. I do not pledge to be this kind or that kind of artist. I am not after a style or a mannerism, but I remain identified with the spiritual journey in which my art lives, grows and breaths. The beauty of detacment to current affairs of the world allows me to be free to be absorbed in the enquiring of WHO AM I ? as person as well as an artist. Being creativity is who we are.
There is no value in searching to become more and more becoming, as in the endless identification with process, style, mannerism, environment, social events and human conditions. True art, to me, is inspired by the realization of being not the doer and certaintly, not the thinker, neither the world, but it is the transformative experience of being. Knowing one’s own true nature is the foundation for happiness and to allow the creative expression to manifest freely. I truly enjoy being immersed in forms and shapes, manifesting the ever expanding awareness within.
