“For creation of my wooden sculptures I have used objects found from Manhattan’s urban ore. Usually it is plywood, parts of furniture and wooden toys. The City is like a huge caterpillar which carries through itself hundreds of tons of wood. I take pleasure in the process of creation and have joy from the idea, that I will give new birth to the thrown out wooden things. “
