“This place is a dream only a sleeper considers it real”

 

Jalal A Din Rumi

My works come from places deep in the unconsciousness; they emerge slowly and find expression in the different materials I work with. I am a multidisciplinary artist, fascinated by the qualities of different media and Materia, more interested in exploring than in making statements…

At times, years pass before I understand the significance of the images that I’m obsessed with; though they usually all have to do with our fragility as human beings.

Over the past few years, glass has been one of my preferred substances, maybe because of its elusive qualities. My glass pieces often encompass metals, minerals and earth, they are cast or fused and then slumped in the kiln.
