statement

We are living in this mass-produced society, fast fashion change consumers’ behavior. This phenomenon made me to consider the spiritual value of objects. This motivational intent led me to draw my art jewellery, to appreciate this imperfect beauty after age of use, which people rarely value and gaze at but must had experienced before.

Have you ever marveled at the rays of sunlight piercing the fleecy clouds, or seen puddles of water on the road with the ripples of waves on a rainy day? Guided by wonder, dynamic movement is the theme of my work. I love to observe the world around me and to find irregular movements that have a mysterious character, which can give an object a deeper meditative quality.

My visual language is inspired by the aesthetic spirit of wabi-sabi, finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature. The concept of dynamic movement is used to describe a physical evolution of an unstable and impermanent condition, and to capture vitality and energy in a static piece of work.

I depict both scientific and artistic aspects. From the scientific aspect, I explore mathematic origami and magnetic properties, while capturing a state of flux from an aesthetic perspective. I am fascinated by the delicate, while investigating the fragile and sensitive qualities of the ephemeral moment, in order to create work, which offer a sense of soothing and poetic grace.
