Five moons and a red mountain

Wood, acrylics, 25Χ35 cm

Artist’s statement

A great part of my work explores the potential of wood, processed or recycled, using the traces of its previous uses.

In my work “Five moons and a red mountain” I use a rough piece of wood, its natural form and the traces of its stratifications. My intention is to interfere with its form as little as possible, to collaborate with my material.
