STATEMENT:

The series of artworks “Folding in Motion” focusing on investigating the relationship between “free” three-dimensional space and two-dimensional graphic deigned surfaces, giving visual meaning without restricting the movements.

 

Utilizing porcelain property to collapse, enables achieving unexpected organic and amorphic forms. There is no searching for thinness, fragility, transparency and whiteness of the porcelain. My artworks are dealing with questions of new inter-space (void image) created by the collapse, motion, color, patterns and fluidity

 

The graphic pattern adds a new dimension to the folding, giving impression of softness forcing the eye to flow the folding.

 

My sculptures are autonomous objects that stand independent of narrative or objectification. As autonomous objects, they lead the viewer to follow his imagination and feelings for their meaning.
