The sculptural series of the last few years is the result of my thoughts on the proximity between creations of nature, on the one hand, and artificial objects on the other. The idea that it is impossible to draw a clear line between these two "media", as postulated in modern critical theory, became the starting point for my experiments with materials and forms. In my sculptural works, I use natural materials such as wood and marble to create objects that appear to trace the thinnest of lines between the artificial and the natural, between the apparently random and the painstakingly fashioned, between what is fundamentally artistic and what is fundamentally natural. My new series of "pieces of yourself" glorifies the multifaceted personality that is comprised in each and every one of us. The sculpture creates the appearance of a three-dimensional stone-bust, until the viewer walks around the work and sees that it consists of different faces, and different pieces of me. The work reflects how we are all complex parts of many characters who come together to create a whole person. I realized that I want to feel the "presence" of a person. It was this "presence" of a person that I wanted to capture in my work - the characters of people, emotions and, indeed, their "essence".
