Mei Mei is a name that refers to a new concept in my work. 2016 was turning point year in my art career and personal development. New images and ideas started to emerge within myself, raising aspects of my personality, interests and needs. Changes guided me to seek new questions and sources of inspiration that where mainly hibernating in my inner self.
Mei Mei materialised in the form of wool sculptures. Supernatural beings for some, adorable child-like animals for others... I can see in these pieces a balance between the dualities of innocence and darkness - the divine and the animal, grounded in the earth. An element of the monstrous has always allowed artists to communicate their ideas and their feelings freely, and there’s an aspect of this in my work. I try to combine the kindness and darkness that are intrinsic to human nature.
