The spaces created by the groupings of multiple pieces constitute an essential element of my work. This is where the interior and the exterior clash; the light and the shadow interplay; the private and the public interact. 

These installations could mirror the little villages with unspoken hierarchies or the vast urban areas with impersonal public places and non-communicative, identical buildings to live.

The concept of this project is getting clearer. I want a darker, more somber, harsh appearance. I am now trying darker clay bodies and bigger sizes.

I want my clay sculptures, these abstract triangular architectures with their unproportioned and nonfunctional openings, to be read as a metaphor of the secluded, muted houses that lock one inside, the darkness within, the unknown.
