“In the creation process I examine the existing outside world and reflect our attitude. I see the beautiful in the day-to-day and even in the “ugly”: Architecture as a piece of jewellery in the landscape. Nature as a piece of jewellery in the human environment. The dilemma of architecture with nature and that of nature with architecture. Their mutual inspiration and influence, balance and instability.
As wearable sculptures, the works describe abstract cities and landscapes and other significant architectual plants. Some reflect on real places, some seem to be futuristic landscapes.”
