ANSWERING PRAVU

I think, or maybe rather I sense, that my objects force, or the presence they have in any given surrounding, is connected primarily with the directed and contemplated force involved in making them. The material I use is dead to me, or at least slumbering, before it is heated and worked, molded, forced into the shapes that I try to control, but that to some extents are unpredictable and uncontrollable within my work process.

Involved in the making are many considerations about line, composition, color, size, weight etc. but underlying all that is a longing from my side to find and expose a dark, heavy, all-embracing, intense presence, that to me is the epitome of the force of the object.
