STICK SCULPTURES

When I first visited the South African Kruger (Sabi Sands), I was fascinated by the way some traditional roofs were made. In a very primitive way, these constructions were built using tree trunks, crossing without any wooden joinery, no special fittings, just bolted, screwed or tied together with ropes. This basic and archaic way of building inspired me to produce these sculptures, which explore this simple technique as a way of representation.

Before humans began to sculpt wood or stone, perhaps there was a more primitive way of representation, one that was lost in time and that might have used sticks or bones to represent the surrounding world.”

These stick figures take us on a journey to the past, they connect us with our primal nature and elevate an elementary way of representation into a form of art.
