ARTIST CARRER STATEMENT

Working abstractly my sculptures are basically geometric and inspired by architectonic forms that are drawings in space.  Like many contemporary artists, I am as concerned with space as I am with form. The open areas become an integral part of the composition, to be given equal importance with the enclosing line. This has been one of the most important departures from classical sculpture taken by artists in this century. I use to full advantage the freedom that constructed sculpture has given me, enabling me to move away from carved or cast solid form and to work freely into space through the use of welded metals and their tensile strengths. It is constructive rather than a reductive system.

Since 2000 I have created kinetic pieces with parts that sway and revolve as the breeze strikes them. Many of them are large in scale. My main purpose is to make public art by focusing on movement as means that is both entertaining and enlightening with polished stainless steel surfaces, to reflect light.

I conceive my work now as movements of components with the use of  wind turbines and solar panels, which will create electricity to illuminate the entire sculpture.  Music provided by a car stereo will function with the same source of energy. I will use colored lights to give different tint to the polished stainless steel. I have created a great number of  artworks made of cardboard and wood to be built in large scale of steel  I have investigated the current technical products available to achieve my current vision of adapting these technical means to create a modern expression of both science and nature.  The world is intensively promoting wind power and solar power for energy efficiency.  My approach to the 21st century technology can be appreciated by the locally and worldwide.
