For me, creative activity is the search for a form to express my thoughts and feelings. What I find most interesting in art is beauty. When I develop a sculpture or painting, I try to find a balance between deliberation and spontaneity; I look for formal solutions that ensure my pieces involve the audience. Thus to me it is primarily sensuality that matters. I also wish my pieces to be clear but not literal. I am inspired by nature, music and people I meet.

Maria Koras’s degree piece is multi-stranded, it addresses loneliness, longing for another human being, as well as love. When we look at her sculpture located high above the audience, it seems to us that we are in the land of fantasy, in the realm of dreams, where anything is possible, where a heavy rock becomes light as a feather. The sculpture represents a huddled-up human figure in a foetal position. We feel a desire to return to the safest place, where maternal love and care are overwhelming.
