Artist Statement:
"My work repurposes found, ready-made objects spontaneously encountered during my daily life. These become part of sculptures and whole room installations that are endlessly in-flux. Precariously constructed sculptures result from a process that embraces chance, explores material relationships and mostly uses what is at hand. By using the excess from society, my work points at a throwaway culture where things are easily disposed of. Conceived in a playful and intuitive manner, it examines ideas of informality, improvisation, and new forms of abstract assemblage. 

Like my assemblages, the painterly drawings I create employ the same disjointed process. Marks are gradually layered, as I explore movement, gestures and everyday materials for mark making. They capture the energy of my whole process on a piece of paper, a condensed sample of the gestures and spirit that are always present in my work.

Through mark-making and sculptural gestures, I attempt to own objects that lie on no-man's land: publicly abandoned yet unclaimed and overlooked by most of people. I improvise and play, allowing myself to be surprised by materials and their infinite possible combinations. Working both on the street and the studio, I examine how worthless fragments can be transformed into unexpected art experiences."
