My father was a gemologist and jeweler. I inherited a box full of minerals. Colorful or grey, glossy or matte, transparent or plain, all made by nature. Without any particular purpose the minerals appear miraculously in my latest work: in the series 'dreamscapes' and 'beyond the image and 'in itself'. Small stones become mountains, large stones shrink into spots, or symbolize the power of an emperor, or depict the subway.
