Artist's Statement

I like being surprised by objects and use them to make sculptures.
Few years ago I started using dust (from friend’s vacuum cleaners) to make sculptures and paintings. When I put the dust on the canvas I can see people’s stories. The dust paintings are like novels condensed in a square: you can see little objects, clips, hair, clothes buttons, receipts... you can read the paintings, follow the traces.
