Artist Statement

"The images of places and people seen through the distance of time and separated by space becomes the stage and character of my art. The separation, I think is essential for my artistic development. It allows the things that mean the most to me to grow stronger and the rest to fade in the vastness of the memory.

The subject that repeats itself over and over in my art is a green mountain that I could see from the backyard of my childhood house in Yugoslavia. It was a place that held a lot of magic, beauty, and history for me and from it's very stone, I mad my first sculptures. Its green essence, its gentle curves, and the reddish accent of its rocks, create and abstract tapestry in my memory." -Silvius Krecu
