Land art and site specific sculpture - land art uses the environment and its scale as its material. Concrete art is expressed in material itself with which the artist introduces her non-representational objective. Public art can be viewed and accessed by observers.

GEOMETRIC SCULPTURE

A geometrical, mathematical approach to sculpture is a way to rationalize as well as construct artifacts. Geometry forms the basis of my sculpture.

At first geometric construction formed a framework of his sculpture, in which its basic geometry surrounded and dictated the contours of his sculptures - which was not always evident. Though the works were clearly mathematical in their basic form language.

Geometric construction is nevertheless always present in his sculpture. In his public sculpture and site specific works (see the section CITIES) geometric construction became a necessity - in order for construction companies to be able to manufacture his monumental sculptures, the sculptor devised geometric and mathematical schemes to aid in achieving perfect results.

Already in art school, the sculptor was increasingly attracted to the basic geometric laws behind his sculpture. Years later, the geometry no longer needed to move to the background in the process of refining the sculptural quality of a work. The geometrical construction was no longer a method towards an end - the means became the end and the geometry behind his sculpture has become the sculpture itself.
