About

My elder works at: www.simonart.carbonmade.com
My design at: www.tamon.carbonmade.com

My life is movement.

If somebody watches me during sculpturing he or she says it looks like massage or a dance with clay.

When I teach movement or I do movement, I feel like sculpturing with the space around me.
To press, to release, to form.

My paintings, drawings and sculptures are movement studies without real forms. I didn’t want to catch the forms but the process of forming. Not the fruit or the flower, which are always changing and growing but the growth and change itself, which will form the material once.

The movements in the drawings, sculptures and paintings rather touch the material than really form it. They are coming and suddenly disappearing.

I am trying to reserve the experience of easy and light forming before stucking in material.
