Sculpture is about the conflict between material, tools, means of expression and the artistic idea. At the moment they are mainly made of wood. For example, the shape of a certain tree trunk appeals to me because I recognize a human shape in it. My idea of ​​her lets me make my first cuts with a chainsaw. This is how a tense process begins, in which I am particularly interested in the relationship between the material of the tree, its volume, its surfaces and lines and my idea.
This seated woman is part of a two-part work in which the protagonists sit opposite each other and, through their posture and participation in the chair attribute, give an idea of ​​the tense atmosphere of conversation.
