Free Standing Sculpture
“Sunflowers go through an interesting life-cycle with fascinating stages. While working on this piece, I tried different arrangements for the flowers and each one created a different sculpture. The final piece presents three stages of blossom: youth, adulthood and maturity. While the youth drop their heads in wilting, the adult heads are held high and proud.
I work intuitively in my studio ‘drawing’ three-dimensional figures in space. Intense concentration is required, like a stage performer who gathers all his energy for performing a single show. In a way, it’s like a choreography of matter. All the information and details needed must be included in one continuous, flowing line.”
