 I would describe my credo about Sculpture in one general sentence: Sculpture is a long-term materialization of an impulsive thoughts. Sculpture is a very ancient initial way to create and to leave a mark in time and space, simply by the fact it is a real object in a real space. Since the beginning of human history making a real object in space has help us to develop our perception through tactile sensitivity. This is the main difference between sculpture and the other art fields- the touching. So, think-touch-create is the way of making three-dimensional art.

I usually use wood for my sculptures. The art of sculpture is to work with the real space. My challenge is to represent the emotions, feelings, conditions or thoughts-- the untouchable things. Following this way I create my works using the real space.
