Handle with care (work in progress)

I built each sculpture out of rusted metal and driftwood found on the New York shores. Like ancient migrations, they follow the water.
Their portraits speak of the transience, vulnerability and universality of each human.

Art is not just a narrative, it is about how it is made.
I immersed myself in the long process of creating each sculpture, including it in a chosen landscape, register it in an image as the final object.
The sculpture absorbs the political landscape, while I document these 'undocumented immigrants'.
Art requires freedom and courage. No 'formulas'. You must always walk new unfamiliar ways, to avoid "producing" and keep "creating" instead.
Moving away from photography meant for me new discoveries, new challenges; I am a perpetual migrant myself.
