In sculpting I’m interested in creating dreamlike spaces.
 
I think art is drawing a line between logical and unlogical landscape. In my creative moments memories, feelings and experiences of space and places meet each other, like in a dream.
 
By searching our common history and following today’s phenomenon, I usually found interesting combinations, which I want to make into three-dimensional form.
 
Latest sculptures are series of different kind of Wasp Factorie  and the space is called “Europe –white dream”. The great inspirer has been Max Ernst and his work “Europe after rain”.
 
In most of my sculptures I have been studying human behaviour in the structures of society. And it’s reflection into surroundings. Wasps are fascinating allegory to human society.
 
In my sculptures the relationship between idea and material is very important. I use recycled material, ready mades, wood and chalk.
