At times in our lives we feel lost and don't know which way to move forward. In a time like this I was invited by Galerie Krinzinger to go on a residency in Sri Lanka for two months. There I was given an amazing opportunity to quiet down my mind and let myself be immersed in the beautiful nature all around.
During my time there I encountered a rotten tree stump which was being washed up at the beach. Each time I would find it in a different spot on the long beach. Some days it would disappear just to appear again a few days later. Eventually, I felt that I needed to create a sculpture with this beautiful dark character.
