Aneta Regel Deleu

I create objects that exist neither in the natural or in the manufactured world, but which, once brought into being, can reflect and transmit information and feelings about nature and my own existence.

Forms of nature and natural materials fascinate me. My aim is to juxtapose the natural and human in order to create a dynamic friction. These landscapes are therefore displacements from the natural world to the constructed.

I want to put life into form, arrest motion, capture energy and rhythm. Not simply a shape, but a feeling, a smell, energy or an emotion.
In my new series ”Metamorphosis” I seek to  convey the sense of transformation and illusion of the passage from one state to another.
