October 2016; This was a symposium that I took part in. The theme was "from waste to art", meaning that each of the participants where to use materials found of dumping grounds, recycling stations and junk yards in order to create different kinds of art works. IN my case I chose to use metal as material, found on the junk yards. Through meticulous material manipulation, I sculpted a form that in my mind depicts a certain kind of still frame of a cyclic flow of energy, which directs matter through space and time, reoccurring in nature and cosmos.
During "Tbilisoba" - the yearly cultural festival in Tbilisi, Georgia, I was commissioned to make a sculpture. I chose an archaic sculpture of a deer, and created a structure, trying to capture the invisible plasticity, which is fascinating to me. Hand made sculptures, crafted a thousand years ago, which are marvelously sculpted in terms of symmetry and elegance of form, makes e wonder, how did those people saw these shapes and proportions.
A Publishing company in Tbilisi. Georgia asked me to create illustrations of significant landmarks of the Capital City. This is the way I decided to visualize these.
