Description

“ I Bug You- series sculptures take their form from nature. The pieces take you in the world of insects and their diversity and wonders.
In the urban world we often forget that there is another world, a colony of insects right there beside us. They invade our space, homes and make us feel uncomfortable by the fact that they exist and confront us daily. But they are there, if we like it or not. For the balance of the world insects are crucial. We need them, but they don’t really need us.

For me insects are also like miniature moving sculpture polished to the perfection by nature. There`s my inpiration of creating my own new species imitating natures working plan. I try to lift them up, give them the highest pedestal so we remember what this world is all about, small things around us which we only can see and appreciate if we could just stop for a moment and look around.“

Materials: hand cut forms of mdf-board, painted by hand with glossy alkyd paint.
