His practical contact with historical Architecture allowed for new ways of understanding sculpture in space. The dynamism of years moving between cultures and situations, emerges visible in a work that's constantly evolving and regenerating.

At the moment his interests are widening towards the landscaping possibilities of sculpture, focusing on ideas of integration between Art, Nature and Architecture.
