In my three-dimensional works I try to present plastically the idea of nature besieged by man, an inversion of the situation that has characterised the earth since the times of the first hominids until less than a century ago.
By assembling artificial materials, like synthetic sponges (polyester foam), and natural materials like wood and cardboard, I try to present this situation overturned with precisely the animal acting as the unnatural material.
My animal sculptures are often enclosed inside containers. A wooden box, a plexiglas showcase, or a glass case isolate them, something like the dioramas that you find in the Museums of Natural History. Whether this is a protection or an oppression, there is substantially no difference.
