Three Dimentional MultiMedia Art

horizontal rule

"These works exemplify an emerging global spirit with its strong sense of ancestral memory and identity, building a bridge between past, present and future and finally transcending local knowledge to express a universal identity.
In making cross cultural references and synthesizing Eastern and Western elements through metaphors and symbols to create works that reflect both the fragility of the environment and the vulnerability of humankind and the human condition, I attempt to call to mind the now threatened symbiosis of nature and humanity.
Through the selection of materials and motifs, my work speaks for the continuity of cultural heritage and for spiritual survival in the context of the contemporary world.
