I approach the human form in a 'reductionist' point of view. Instead of whole bodies, I make plaster castings, cut them into various sections and re-assemble them. Missing parts become a study of 'contrasts': positive and negative, good and evil, yin and yang. Life is a balance of these forces. I like to mix the traditional with a contemporary touch – the 'old' mixed with the 'new'. By taking away parts I can involve the viewers' imagination.
