2012 The 18th Aswan International Sculpture Symposium (Egypt)
2012 Invitation for 2nd International Stone Sculpture Symposium ( Kartal Municipality, Istanbul)
2012 International sculpture symposium (Penza, Russia)
I perceive the art of sculpture as a formative process, in which the artist creates an order in space quite different from usual. Undeniably, it’s an art of real three-dimensional objects placed in real space. Although, the sculptor uses exact sciences as geometrics, physics, biology etc. his aim is to express and share in public his feelings, impressions, inventions, view of life.
In the context of our age - dynamic, intense, overloaded with information, I have chosen the short form as the best way for artistic expression. I create my sculptures as different fragments in order to achieve more vital, direct and immediate effect. I emphasize on a detail of a curious structure, object or substance, giving it a new meaning by putting it in extraordinary environment or changing its dimensions and composition.
It is a process of searching, concentration and receiving informative signals, which I later transform into a new reality. The finished piece of art, as a real sized object, measures itself with environment, lives its own life and associates with the public owing to the language of sculpture.
