The materials chosen as personal figure of their artwork are wood and metal, elements with a strong symbolism. Wood evokes the resilience of the nature, the ability to be flexible and adaptive to exogenous circumstances as well as to own inner needs. Metal refers to the energetic movement that allows to internalize, to receive the outside inside us, and to being able to let go.
