STATEMENT

“My artistic practice is deeply influenced by the surroundings. Rather than being defined by a particular medium, many of my projects are linked by the idea of “making-do”, drawing insights from the resourceful, adaptive, and occasionally precarious tactics people employ in their daily lives. I am currently developing a methodology centered on observing and interpreting everyday practices through sculpture making, delving into the notion of individual agency amid the disorder and fragmented nature of contemporary life. Simultaneously, I investigate our perception of the concealed material world that lies within it.”
