In the last few years I have focused on observing the human body in its various forms and diversity. I tried to understand what attracts me most about a body and to use these shapes as a physical representation of a mental state. The thing that always intrigued me the most was how such shapes could create such an attraction in me and therefore how artworks could attract the viewer and create an immediate visual connection. My works are legs and feet with exaggerated shapes and with distorted structures, they refer to the human physical connotations but they are representations of feelings that I have experienced during my childhood and are still part of my life. The sculptures are affected by my experimentation with different materials, sometimes they are a combination of real objects other times they are structures I created.
