My sculpture is founded in hyperrealism in human and animal forms which I then blend with varying degrees of expressive interpretation. Careful study and deep analysis of the anatomy of every subject I sculpt enables me to recreate the subtlest tensions of musculature and movement, and to articulate my vision with high levels of accuracy. This deep understanding of physical characteristics gives me the ability to manipulate and create something new, rather than recreate the reality. In doing so, I strive for my sculptures have an emotional impact on the viewer, to call to mind memories or tell stories, as if each has its own spirit that is emerging from within. I’m trying to produce sculptures that capture the “character” and “likeness” that is different from the actual reality. I’m interested in the subjective perception more than in scientific measurements. More like a poet describing an event in comparison to a journalist - although less factual may nevertheless reveal truths about it that you won’t find in “dry” facts. I am expressing my mind with three dimensional form in space. I manipulate, distort, add and remove: proportions, tensions, weights and scale in order to achieve the desired “feeling” in relation to the sculpture. The subject’s movement and balance are important for me to be included in the piece to express it’s nature. I take inspiration from surrounding world. It can be a childhood memory as well as an impression from my travels. I especially enjoy Scuba Diving which gives me access to the fascinating underwater world full of amazing and inspiring creatures. The impression of a creature in its natural environment and your body present and exposed for direct interaction with it is far away from studying its subject in a laboratory, library or home-safe environment. I am trying to capture my impression rather than recreate anatomically accurate representation
