The contrasting elements of the piece playfully interact with each other, allowing the soft shapes and delicate structures to allow colours to appear differently when viewed from different angles. This reveals a new formal language of tridimensional colour gradations. My inspiration derives from transparency, light, space, depths, and colour gradations. When brought together in harmony, these elements turn my sculptures into living objects.
