Artist Statementin my work i polish, clean and transform for the spectator. i respect their given form, don’t change but translate the boulders and columns i work with, considering myself a servant to those rocks – formed millions of years ago. my stones are the whales of the land. cruising australia and other countries i constantly search for them. in the lucky moments they will lift their mighty bodies out of the earth and make themselves visible. then the hard work begins: polishing the rough skin for hours i reveal their hidden identity - glimpsing the secret of continuance. it is very important to interact with my work by touching and feeling the rock’s smoothness and roughness, coolness and heat. particularly children are often irresistibly drawn to cuddle, play with and even climb the sculptures – what bigger compliment could i ask for?
