I was sitting in his garden making one of many drawings – when it suddenly hit me. The realm of absolute artistic freedom, the unique relationship with materials he used, the immense garden in front of my eyes – shadows of his sculptures, wind blowing and playing with my hair, all the meanings of life.. emotions overflowing.. it became a place where I tried to establish meeting with eternity – to bring the infinitesimal part to the wholeness.
My drive is the urge to fulfill elementary and primordial human needs, those transcendental, which are nowadays almost forgotten – those are the needs which are not giving us right to choose. It is a hunger for something beyond itself – to discover in all lusts and all crimes, in all trials and all despair, an infinite reason for existence; where each part of the body is will – it is (in all the glory) eternal victory of the human spirit.
Rodin work is the mystery that excites me and awakens the desire to capture that particular moment.
It is a hundred years since August Rodin passed away. This is a tribute to his life and his work.
