''We see that crucial for human beings is the material presence, that became extremely, money-like precious. And with which goods are we trading using this type of „currency“? Our most numerous and biggest product in the trash. It is the foundation of our economy, that turns almost everything into trash. My works connect the two areas. They are made from the garbage material by long handmade process. Everything present. They are filled with an aura of a question (that is sometimes humorous sometimes deep) of contemporary spirituality. They are searching for both interior and exterior path to be taken by humankind.''
