Artist Statement

Through the years I've been creating objects with several medias: recycled found objects and materials (my “Earth Defense Team” robots), metals, clay, wood, stone and performance. Throughout my production I think that emerge a whimsical theme leading to a playful interaction with the object either physical (as with my pottery, my toys and some of my kinetic sculptures) either imaginative as I try the art piece to be more like a crazy question than a well explained statement.

I believe in the importance of recycling as an art form for its powerful capacity of suggesting new creative association in the mind of the artist and the public and also as a moment of positive reflection about our consumerist society and its load on the limited resources of our planet.
