“My works are a response to the conflicts within my world. Heavy Construction / Delicate Destruction depicts the conflict between man and nature, masculine and feminine, experiential and commodification, and these are blended with a good dash of idealism. The ephemeral silicone installations live for the duration of the exhibition and then are thrown away to exist only in documentation and memory.”
