Catalogue Note

"As a sculptor, having accidentally stumbled on rattan, bamboo and metal wire as my main materials, I sensed I was free from the art history that I knew. Working slowly, I gave up notions of what the final work should be like and what the forms meant... It was as though I was a kid again making slingshots and clay marbles; making toy boats and small arrows. They were the stuff of childhood memories. To make something was, at one point in my life, both therapeutic and necessary."
