Structure, 2023

Steel with a natural finish
274 × 70 × 50 cm
This steel sculpture looks like an organic relict of a tree overgrown with ivy, its impression standing in stark contrast to the steel material used. The artist himself speaks of water fountains. As if growing out of the ground and returning to it, this sculpture seamlessly integrates itself into the surrounding space. In this group of works, the artist uses reclaimed steel and ribbed reinforcing iron, which have acquired their own traces through time. The rust of the surfaces has a colourful quality. The recycling of materials is also a theme here.
