Crevices that Gives life, clay, glaze and sand, 2017
My work calls attention to the beauty of nature that often goes unnoticed, particularly its propensity. We are surrounded by petals, stems, plants, sea coral, rocks and other elements of nature, above and under the sea level, which continuously fuels fuel my inspiration. The exaggerated forms, colors and textures in my work are derived from studying details of nature at the microscopic and naked eye level. As one explores the intimate details of my work, I would like to emphasize that my intentions are to captivate viewers to observe the minute details of all aspects our surroundings and appreciate the relationship of our co-existence.
