The purpose of my nude sculptures is to find NATURE. In the reposing body but, even more importantly, in the moving body, e.g. a dancer, an erotic writhing girl, a bather. I depict the human body as a holistic form consisting of a single motion. Its material form is viewed and expressed both from within as well as from the outside. The exterior form that I create through the tangible modelling of the clay awakens the interior, in which the true significance lies, and depicts the emotions, the relationship between couples, the disciplined but unconscious courage of a dancer, the exuberant liveliness of a person.
Every sculpture is therefore a momentary conception designed to incorporate both the before and after and follows the movement of the mind and the body.
Present also is the conflict between a restricted and moralistic view of nudity and that of a more liberal, relaxed and embracing acceptance of the human body. My work challenges the taboos and guilty feelings, the timidity of not having a perfect body while simultaneously questioning the warped and often unscrupulous depiction of sex and nudity in the media.Very few people or couples can be described as “happy” and unrestrained eros or sensuality in all its beauty is hard to achieve.
My wish is to portray the physical and emotional presence of the human body.
The Suspending Pair
Dance is a challenge to discipline, perseverance and an action of different physical movements which have to be absorbed into the subconscious to promote final flow and perfectionism.
