scrap metal and broken glass
The work is inspired by Iceland, which is known as the land of fire and ice, with its ravishingly diverse landscapes of volcanic formations and majestic glaciers. This beauteously exemplifies the notion of duality that seems to interweave amongst our existence, where the unity of opposites such as hot versus cold, natural versus artificial, active versus passive, decay versus durability, destruction versus construction, etc. are omnipresent. Polarity explores this concept using found metal and glass remnants that have been exposed to the dualistic elements of nature. The result is an assembly of curious sculptures that resemble fragments of a subjective dystopian/utopian landscape, as inspired by the sensuous allurement of such paradoxical dichotomy between the volcanic and the glacial surrounding Iceland.
