ABOUT

Over a decade ago, circumstances led me to change my life and I started painting. This led me to sculpture and I started sculpturing in Stone and Bronze. In 2006 I came across glass as a sculpturing medium and was captured. Captured by this material which is so hard to control and by its 4th dimension: light reflection. The ever changing presentation according to light penetration, reflection, coloring, cold and warmth has captured my heart. The subjects I choose to sculpture derive from observing the way we interact in our lives in all aspects: Having a dialogue with our sexuality, within our family, in the modern society and between ourselves and religions. In my work I try to emphasis these relationships. At the same time, life in Scotland and the exposure to such beauty of nature have deeply touched me. My sculptures are mostly figurative with strong emphasis on femininity, sexuality and relationships. Working in 3 dimensions with different materials excites me in particular and the challenge to express my ideas with the limitations of different mediums is rewarding. Working with glass and its 4th dimension is the most exciting form I can imagine working with.
