Celine with Shadow, 2013-Hand cut corten steel. Celine with Shadow is drawn by solid outlines of a human body made of tree branches, questions the division between the inner landscape of a man and his external surrounding. The branches also propose their existence as pulsating veins, together creating something larger than them selves, adding a silhouette of its own shadow creates a greater illusion to this ambiguous piece.
