Artsy: What’s next for you? Where do you see your practice headed?
AK: In the future, I want to continue with the materials that I have been using already, but I also want to incorporate anything new that can serve my practice: glass, metal, stainless steel, bronze, plastic, colored bricks, 3D printing…I’m constantly looking. Each material has its own natural, intrinsic qualities and using, altering, or forcing it into your process is almost like leaving a fingerprint, something that’s left behind.
In a studio practice, you create sculptures that can be sold in galleries and art fairs, but I also love doing commissioned pieces, and permanent installations that can become part of the blueprint stages of a building. So that’s a place where I hope I can grow as an artist and where the studio practice can expand: new challenges and new problems to solve.
