Speaking about her work she says, “Even if plastc is a new material, the tecnique of interlacing it in preconstituted nets is connected to the past. It makes it live again in the shape of sculpture, which spreads out towards the space around, creating various texturised effects. Observing nature itself, I transfer the essential being of it. The interlacing forms trasform the industrial material into soft and sensual shapes.”
