My work is minimal and inspired by unassuming objects. Noticing their
intrinsic beauty is my job as an artist. My relationship with the object is
analogous to that of a human relationship: Sometimes the relationship is
established over time, and the object gradually becomes a daily partner.
At other times it is love at first sight. Similar to a relationship, the goal is
not so much the final product, rather the process and experience is central
to the work itself.
