Art is my nature. Metal is my fifth element. I join metal craft experience with love to this amazing substance. I feel it’s living matter… changing, growing, moving among forms. This is the only art material we can use many times, giving new shapes and features and meanings.
„Does the matter remember its’ shapes?” This Bruno Schulz’s question about matter doesn’t let me sleep calm. I love to play with metal phisical features, using strenth, flame, chemistry and free imagination to search new shapes, textures and forms.
This is the point of my art, alchemical research about forms of live.
Metal was beloved substance by alchemists. Previously people believed that metal is a living part of nature (like plants), growing up (for thousants years) in the Earth, from simple forms like iron, through copper and lead, to perfect metal – gold. Looking for a gold in their alembics, alchemists wanted to cheat a time, to make something faster than nature. Contemporary science achievements proves they’re right…
I am looking for a perfect art form for this amazing metal substance. I believe it’s still not found.
