It was my father’s photographic expression that tought me how to see. My work with granite and black diabase is connected to his black and white photography, to my childhood. Light travelling on forms, edges and ridges cutting the light, darkening the next plane, generating varying intensities of grey, all the way to black. As a photography, a sculpture is also the product of careful construction (appraising the light, studying the subject, understanding its composition) ; drawing and the positioning of volume in space are fundamentals.
I am a sculptor of the monumental, but it is in small-scale sculptures, that I search for answers and find them.
