My main priority as an artist is to achieve a balance between the artist and the work
itself. By this I mean that the artist has a limited role in realizing his creation; he strives
to give shape to the raw materials only up to a certain point. After that, the materials
respond on their own, guiding the artist’s vision. In this way, man and nature coexist in
the resulting creation.
Another equally important goal is to challenge and subvert established aesthetic
standards and values. Examples of such standards are good or bad, beautiful or ugly,
comfortable or uncomfortable, Western or Eastern, etc. Transcending these categories
gives the work of art a youthful, childlike freshness and originality not bound by
convention. I ask the viewer to view the work with the pure gaze of a child, in order to
see it more truthfully.
I usually try to attain this childlike perspective at the very beginning of the creative
process. This allows me to free the work from its conceptual boundaries, rendering it
more universal. Such universality is now more important than ever; technology has
broken down physical and cultural barriers. I would like my art to reflect this
globalization, and persuade people to find unity in diversity, the simple in the complex.
I now use molten glass, gold and platinum foils in my art, beginning with a certain
conception, and then allowing the materials to mold the art into the finished product. I
also strive for universal shapes and forms. During the creation of a piece, I imagine
myself on the plane of the materials, as an equal to them. I admit and accept the nature
of the materials, which result in spontaneously changing patterns of melted gold or
platinum foils on highly heated molten glass
