About Marika Bordes

Artist Statement: Sculpting is a physical and emotional challenge demanding discipline and hard work.  A price paid freely and gladly for it gives form to dreams and purpose to life.  Emerging slowly from this labor is a bond of intimacy.  With nurturing and resilient spirits, the artist and the wood join in a mystical flow of energy and rhythm.  From this union the seeds of creativity and rebirth flower into a work of art. Above all, the sculptures allow me to share the wood’s enchanted poetry with you.
