Recycled metal and plastic on painted Wood
“What I stand for is what I stand on” - Wendell Berry
My work is about celebrating what I like and appreciate: nature, especially the wilderness, and at the same time, cities, progress and all the new inventions that improve our quality of life. Nature and human activities are often in conflict with each other, but they don’t need to be. “Hope” was born during one of my walks in the countryside. In a patch of garbage, heedlessly left behind, were broken glass, plastic bottles, rusty cans… The initial unpleasant feeling changed when I got closer, and saw all sorts of insects in and around this filth as well as butterflies flying about. This scene was a testimony to the resilience of our planet and the capacity to regenerate itself. It was all about the example these little creatures were giving, by creating a new space of life in spite of the destruction. The world of visual arts creates consciousness in me; it “creates me”.
