VISION / STATEMENT

For years now, I have dedicated my art to awaken, evoke, stimulate, surprise and sometimes educate. My work is addressed to the largest possible number of people and is accessible to art lovers as well as to the non-initiated. My artworks are imagined and created to be vectors of emotions; they challenge and I try through them, humbly, to awaken consciences to the current and future upheavals of our planet.

Mostly dominated with white, and sometimes colored, my creations are now coming to life in 3 dimensions.

They evoke nature, beauty and the energy of the universe but also humanity's excesses and its harmful consequences. The Light is always present through the dilution of inks and natural pigments that create mysterious auroras. I also like working with mixed media to reach new dimensions and give life to the fantasy.

 

My inspirations are so wide that I keep a kind of moodboard made up of different materials, photographs, multiple artworks, music and texts that inspire me and challenge me. I recycle, I collect and I store objects, until these elements find their natural place in a work of art.

My freedom of creation is vital, my process is extremely spontaneous and intuitive. A piece of work, painted or sculpted, usually appears very clearly to me as a vision while I am already in the midst of creating. I have one golden rule in mind: never forbid myself anything, whatever the dream might be. The technical process to realize this project becomes clear in my head during the following night.

Obviously, I sometimes face obstacles, the feasibility is not always crystal clear, but my thirst to learn and work allows me to find the solutions.

Challenge is a friend that supports and motivates me.
