Li, Aron


In my artistic practice I work mainly with sculptural metal objects. The thematic foundation of my practice lies in questions concerning human impact on the environment – whilst the urge to create derives from my interest in the techniques and traditions of craftsmanship. Inspired by the complex structures that can be seen in animal and plants I focus on tactility and visuality, and try to capture the beauty of nature. In allowing traces of materials and techniques to affect the final form of the work, the working process is a vital part of my artistic expression.
