Dialectic of transformation - where do we come from, where are we going?
The human being in relation to nature and technology in the field of tension of becoming is thematically an essential form characteristic of my terracotta sculptures. I am interested in the point at which the opposites cancel each other out, but still unite these polar potentials in themselves and thus contain an ambivalent structure. The question of space and time, whether it is organic or technical, human or machine, remains open here.
In the artistic process, I formed and arched directly from a whole block of clay. Mass replaced by space, with the physical or spiral spatial construction brings dynamic force and stability. In the energetic process of smoke firing, the terracotta sculpture undergoes further transformation.
