"bronze as Bronze"

I wanted to start from the beginning, to once again come face to face with bronze as a material.

As my hands were guided with this intention in mind, the phrase ‘to transcend the vessel’ came back to me.

Come to think of it, my first proper solo exhibition was an attempt to present ‘vessels as forms in their own right’ within a particular environment.

After more than 30 years, I wanted to probe more deeply into the relationship between objects and the spaces they inhabit.

I have always struggled to define for myself what ‘vessel’ means. I am still uncertain.

Despite and regardless of this, I have set out to explore bronze in its most naked and raw state.
