As a child I spent every Sunday wandering through the forest with my mother. On these journeys, I discovered many varieties of trees, some of which quickly captured my heart.

I loved the solid, impressive beech trees. As I wandered along the hiking trails, their large eyes seemed to observe me.

It was like being in a fairy tale. The trees came alive. They communicated with me.

While only their outlines were visible, I could feel the secrets hidden underneath their bark.

I wish to expose this secret world, to establish a connection between man and nature.

These wooden sculptures express our human vulnerability: trees are the lungs of our existence.

Trees grow in a cyclical process of rising, expansion and transformation. The tree’s annual rings center themselves around the heart of the tree in its trunk.

In Venice, beside the flowing water of the lagoon, three tree figures demonstrate that they are both headstrong and bent on growing.
