Li, Aron Irving
Jewelry and metalworks
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.
