I use metal as an artistic medium, and for engaging in body-centered research.
I find it crucial to vary how I activate my body and my senses when making art and other objects. This allows my entire human nature to participate: a prerequisite for wellness.
I primarily work in iron and bronze, sometimes combined with other materials. The focus and physical presence needed to work metal allows me to challenge the constant human drive to achieve comfort, a sedentary lifestyle, and the atrophy that follows.
This working process also relates to the concepts I explore: Tradition vs. technology, social polarization and bodily laterality, finding the sacred via metalwork, and imitation and scapegoat violence.
