Masks, self-portraits, disturbing figures and hybrid creatures are all visual embodiments of his work. The artist weaves his masks on a skeleton of needles to form faces with a network of crossed threads. He models his portraits after splitting them and assembling them with foreign parts. He mixes soft materials such as wool and feathers. But also transparent resins to harden them, before superimposing them to create increasingly solid volumes.
