He’s the author of monuments in public space in Georgia, particularly in Tbilisi, including the monument to the first Czech president Vaclav Havel, Andria Dadiani and other. We will ask more questions at the venue.
Reflection in Space is a horizontal composition. It shows four states of the sun, which affect the Earth and space. The combination of shapes activates the form and creates an amazing image on the sunny figures. A rhythmic relationship of the shapes creates invisible poetry and invokes positive emotions of the viewer. A sculpture should have a positive viewer positioning, making contact. It should be a mediator between man and nature in this particular space. Sculpture can affect negative emotions. It creates an aura between the viewer and the object and engages the person in dialogue.
