For creation of my wooden sculptures I have used objects found from the Manhattan's urban ore. Usually it is plywood, parts of furniture and wooden toys. The City is like a huge caterpillar which carries through itself hundreds tons of wood. I like to come to Manhattan to rummage in a city waste in search of the necessary materials. Working on a sculpture, I take pleasure in the process of creation and have joy from the idea, that I will give new birth to the thrown out wooden things.
