on the boundary of knowledge

Galleria Sculptor, 29 January to 16 February 1997

"What does it stand for?"

"It stands for your question and, at the same time, the answer to it. "

A piece of sculpture poses questions and provides answers in the language of form. The language of form is just like any written or spoken language. Here it consists of steel plates. Metal plates have been cut and welded into figures. The reflecting surfaces duplicate forms and create new non-tangible spaces.

As an artist, I have aspired for "correctness" and clarity. However, like any sentence that is grammatically correct, a piece of sculpture can have ambiguous meanings.

I hope that my sculptures will "communicate" to the viewer, stimulate ideas from the limits of awareness. Assuming that my sculptures can ask questions, they must, in the name of art, also provide answers. An answer that cannot be expressed in words is conveyed from beyond awareness by the strength of form.
