Since living in Vienna I have been creating many artworks using metal forming. The only material available to me during this time was electric wire, which I wrapped to create figures to express my ideas about human emotions in different stages of life. I burned the plastic lining to express the suffering of human life which is represented in the resulting texture. The exposed wire represents the strength and power of the human in response to hardships and suffering. I’ve continued using these techniques and today present them to you as a developing series I call Human.
