About The Artwork

I started creating leather sculptures during the Covid lockdown, in 2020. With restrictions all around in the outer world, it was a period of reconnecting with the most sensitive parts on the inside. I learned how real strength can be found in softness, how rigid environments become bearable if we are supple, and how we can move past anxiety by becoming vulnerable. Leather or skin is the substance that separates the outer world from what is within. It offers protection: due to it’s softness it’s unbreakable, and it’s flexibility provides the freedom necessary for movement. These are the qualities that are also essential for our psychological and emotional adaptation to our environment. The work 'Monster' is made of 70 circle-shaped pieces of leather. All parts are carefully hand cut, with the use of cardboard patterns. The parts are glued together on the flesh side, and cut precise. Each piece is double faced: one side is made of green cow leather, the other is green calf hide, in a similar color tone. Edges are painted with four layers of green paint, by hand. Then, pieces are joint together with hand stitching, forming 7 long spirals. Finally they are woven together into one giant circular piece, the loose ends are closed with hand stitching. Please note, that given it’s flexible, stretchy structure and weight, the artwork cannot be hung on vertical surfaces.

During my university years I studied fashion design, and specialized on leather accessories early on. In the past 12 years I established my own studio, and focused my attention on sharpening craft skills, while creating bags and other accessories mainly for women. Rather than following fashion trends, my approach to creating objects has always been very sculptural. I enjoy experimenting with shapes, structures and unusual outlooks. I like to think of my art as half poetry, half mathematics. The colors, textures, curves and organic shapes come from my emotional states, but the strict geometry and carefully calculated number and size of the elements, as well as the periodically repeated patterns are purely mathematical. Working with leather also requires a rather perfectionist approach. Everything needs to be well prepared and calculated before execution, because leather is easy to shape, but it doesn’t allow you to make mistakes. It’s a fascinating material, for me it represents truly feminine qualities: soft but resistant, adaptable yet very strong. My artistic routine is concentration, repetition, and being fully immersed in the slow pace of creation. I’m inspired by spirituality, natural growth processes, biology, and man-made structures like origami, woven fabrics and architecture.
