Where did I get my influence about this mother and child sculpture ?

The natural environment of African landscape, the primitive way of life and my father’s metal workshop where I used to spend many hours playing are the basic reasons that led me to metal sculpture by using engine’s spare parts. They provide me with shapes and forms which I weld, grind, polish and finally varnish. I feel that I always have something new to discover which lead to new ideas and inventions. Using parts is about constructing, assembling, disassembling. Try the infinite possibilities of combining various objects to form what I have in my mind. These sculptures  are a combination of figurative and industrial art.

My current themes are mostly humanoid. As am attempt to show the fragile nature of mankind through the birth cycle, the creation process, motherhood, love. On the other side, I experience metal sculpture as a game and revive my need to play by creating vehicles such as motorbikes, cars and trains.

The strong needs of an individual to explain his existence, to seek his origins, the power of the mind are themes that fascinate me. A challenge for me would be in creating huge metal sculptures involving movement in order to create kinetic sculptures (kinetic art). I admire kinetic artists such as Jean Tinguely, Alexander Calder and classic sculptors such as Henry Moore, David Smith. My goal through my artwork is to convey the way I experience life and my exploration of art by using an industrial material which is being transformed to an unusual medium in Art.

The definition of a mother is someone who nurtures. Yes, carrying a child in your womb for months and then giving birth creates a lifelong bond, but it’s the unconditional support of a child throughout life that defines this role.
A maternal bond is the relationship between a mother and her child. While typically associated with pregnancy and childbirth, a maternal bond may also develop in cases where the child is unrelated, such as an adoption. Both physical and emotional factors influence the motherchild bonding process.
Children who are given love and affection from their mothers early in life are smarter, with a better ability to learn. They found that school-aged children whose mothers nurtured them early in life have brains with a larger hippocampus – a key structure important to learning, memory and response to stress.
Madonna is a representation of Mary, either alone or with her child Jesus. These images are central icons for both the Catholic and Orthodox churches. The word is from Italian ma donna, meaning ‘my lady’.

What is the difference between a statue and a sculpture?

statue is a carved or cast figure of a person or animal. Sculpture is a piece of art that is made by carving or molding clay, stone, metal, etc. A sculpture that contains a human or animal figure can be termed as a statue. While all statues can be termed as sculptures, not all sculptures can be termed as statues
