I was visiting Andrei Roiter in his Amsterdam studio. He told about his source of inspiration and how he combines the classical way he learned to work with contemporary media. He explained in detail the way he likes to work with different materials: to cast them , to create sculptures with them, and to make drawings that show the changing texture. I was most fascinated by the shelves at the back of the studio covered with small sketches and ideas for the coming works. This small scale shows the various materials and the ideas of the artist.
