‘What strikes me with metal as a material is its resistance. Metal seems to me like a stubborn interlocutor and the attempt to change it by pushing and bending involves a certain energy and power. The material demands patience, as it needs to be persuaded into acquiescence while it rigidly proclaims itself as unalterable. When the metal is bent physically, the energy of bending remains apparent.’

Matisse Blau and Barriere (both 2010) rest on plinths and are far sturdier than the more precarious shapes of his previous works. ‘The earlier sculptures such as Untitled (2004) are static and resemble figures. There is a constant notion of a singular unity that continues throughout the working process.’
