Bio:

There exists a delicate nature and an organic aesthetic within and throughout the sculptures I make. The inherent characteristic of thermoplastic, commonly known as hot glue determines a particular relationship of a repetitive action. This action is a significant aspect, requiring an arduous amount of time, patience and control in order to manifest it into a sublime object. Gravity enforces a significant condition on which thrives a distinct outcome of delicateness. The constraints contribute to an urge of finding a solution, thus resolving it as a definite entity, which has the capacity of resembling a kind of creature or an artefact from an unworldly or fictional narrative.
 

A lack of permanent place to exist requires the sculptures to be supported by exterior objects, which assist them to remain as they were created; although the outcome also depends on these supports. This has defined a focus on the display and the surroundings in which they are placed. Creating a narrative between the Art work and its surrounding atmosphere allows the viewer not only to observe the artefact but also to be within its authentic parameters.
SOME OF THE ABOVE IS DEFINITELY BULLSH*T...SOME OF IT IS DEFINITELY ALRIGHT
