HEY SISTERS 
EXHIBITION IN GALLERIA BECKER   12.10.2013 - 30.10.2013 
 
 
 
 
 
Galleria Becker exhibited my sculptures  
on girls and women. 
 
Young girls with slim legs stood  
in their high heeled shoes, 
their faces painted white. 
 
On the walls you could see older women, 
some quite luscious, barefooted, with a bird nest on top of the head, tangled in a net, 
passing roses, dancing as angels. 
 
You can consider the works having been 
made in a value perspective adopted  
to our time.  
It is an ancient manner that has not been widely used since the Middle Ages.  
Persons who were seen as more 
distinguished were represented in a large 
scale and in an imposing setup while 
people with lesser value were represented 
in a modest way and in a smaller scale. 
 
In these artworks I have used mainly a composite material of mineral substances and cellulose fiber and some parts made of acryl plate, paper, wood, yarn etc. 
Saving the nature and recycling materials give the sculptures more character  
and depth of meaning. 
 
These artworks have been made in 
2011-2013
