Humans destroy and manage nature to make their lives more comfortable, myself included.
Like food wrapped in plastic wrap.
This work represents the domination of nature by humans. And there is a small space between the wood and the concrete.
This is a message that "there must be a certain distance between nature and humans. It is a kind of social distance.
Humans should pay more attention to nature.
Based in: New York
In 2017, at the age of 33, I started creating sculptures as a self-taught sculptor and currently work in New York City.
Previously, I worked as an accountant in a company for 12 years. I also have no educational background in art. However, at the age of 37, I could no longer contain my passion for creating and jumped into the art world. I realize that I am crazy, but now I am ready to try anything.
My creativity starts with negative emotions. I hate the human ego. We kill people, animals, and nature to better our own lives. Including myself. Of course I love my family, my friends, and I would like you too. But when I create, the negativity overflows. In particular, it is the human ego towards nature.
My works are mainly made from discarded wood and concrete. The wood is a symbol of nature and the concrete is a symbol of artificial objects.
The wood is a symbol of nature and the concrete is a symbol of humans.
I sometimes reuse discarded wood from the sidewalks of Manhattan.
The reason concrete is a symbol of humans is because, according to one paper, concrete is the largest total amount of artificial material on the planet.
Concrete in my work often represents architecture. I am mainly inspired by Russian avant-garde architecture, which incorporates elements of art into architecture. By attempting to reimport from architecture to art, I am expressing a kind of human rationalism.
These materials are used to represent the domination of nature by humans. And there is a small space between the wood and the concrete. This is a message that "there must be a certain distance between nature and humans. It is a kind of social distance. Humans should pay more attention to nature.
I create my works with this in mind.
