Monkeys are a great topic for me to carve. Not only because of the curiosity of their form, but above all because of the variety of emotions they express and can be transferred to a sculpture. It becomes less important then whether the detail is well made, and the superior value is capturing the moment that expresses something. It is best to carve such designs... from the heart. So do I - I collect references on a given topic, search, try to feel the atmosphere, the situation, etc. Then I put away all the collected documentation and sculpt from my hand, from myself, from my heart. In my opinion, only then the most interesting works are created. It doesn't matter the material you use or the technique - sensitivity is above all.
In my sculptures whether it will be a figure, a bust or a head what I like the most is changing their scale and the way of carving. That is why once a precision sculpture is created, another time a sketch. In both cases I try to suggest something interesting.
