The past plays an important part in my creative process. My role as an artist is to dig through layers of history like a cultural and psychological archaeologist. My most recent work, The Archaeology of Memory series has been influenced by the loss of collective culture and memory. Clay has been my main medium as it embodies the most dynamic qualities of life and nature, both metaphorically and physically. Since my main source of inspiration is nature, particularly seen in an ever-changing process, I see in clay the natural element that undergoes transformations, from volcanic eruptions to the breaking down and weathering of mountains. From the beginning of history, there has been a connection between words and clay as the first forms of written knowledge were on clay tablets.I have chosen to reference books because they are historic symbols of knowledge and collective memory.
