“In the Ocean of the Universe”

We are part of the Universe, the Universe is part of us…
Dissolving in the Universe as in a bottomless ocean, our souls intertwine into Infinity.

The origin of life in the universe.

“Hear the song of my heart!”
2016/ 50 cm./ Mixed media: polymer clay, artificial hair, wrapped with copper wire
Hush! Close your eyes Feel the wind blowing, twisting and knotting hair into a tight braid, the touch of the sunbeam gently caressing the golden skin. Dive into the living coolness of crystal water and breathe in the endless love of Mother Earth.
Hush! Feel the Tam-Tam‘s ringing rhythm of my heart. And then you will hear a quiet song, a bright bird flying through the infinity of space and time…

“See, Hear, Speak”
2018/ 42 cm./ Mixed media: polymer clay, wrapped with copper wire
I SEE the pulsation of a sensitive heart.
I HEAR the vibration of a ringing bell in me.
I SPEAK the melodic trills of birds.
