From Letters to The Word

„The inscriptions that sometimes appear on the surfaces of my works do not have a solely decorative role, but they are meant to be read, enriching the message conveyed by the sculptural form.

On the seven Philokalia  (2020), inscribed are text, such as the beginning of Genesis in the original Hebrew, fragments from the Philokalia, and the Cloud of Unknowing (anonymous text from the 15th century) or the beautiful mystical prayer of Abba Iosif Hazzaya that is recited before Holy communion. These texts marked me deeply and I presented them on this series of seven columns, each 250cm high, in mixed media, which bring together sculpture, graphics and inscriptions”’
