This sculpture is about bursting energy, exploding in all directions. Yet to make the best use of that energy, it is key to give it some direction.
Part of the ongoing series “I Can”, where I systematically grow erratic and surrealistic natural shapes onto tin cans. The dialogue between each can and growth expresses a different emotion, mood or state of the mind. They are personal and talk about myself, putting into shape what I feel or go through. They are very intuitive work where I let my hands and the clay decide where to go after a rough sketch of the emotion I want to materialize.
