 My work consists of an aesthetic search for the shape and the material. The outline of the pieces is thought over according to simple and pure lines that endow the object with some serenity. The treating of the surface allows to give a personal touch to the work. In order to obtain the different aspects of roughness, scratch, or carbonization, a precise knowledge of the techniques and meticulous work are necessary. In order to obtain some textures, I even use a blow torch, a kind of chain saw or acid.  The work done on the material gives birth to a contrast between light and shadow. The notches of the wood create the downstrokes and the upstrokes; the polishings permit the brightness or the dark effect. To this, we must add the nature of the wood which according to it's colors or it's irregularities will contribute to different results. I principally use local species such as walnut, maple, ash etc. By making use of the specific characteristics of each species and by combining sometimes different materials such as metal, slate or wax linen with the wood, I endow the piece with its special richness.

 ARCHEOLOGY OF SENSES  After studying plastic arts in London, it took me 20 years to reconnect with creation. My work is therefore above all the fruit of a latency, a gestation. It is born in silence and responds to these immobile moments that "gather our pieces" forgetting the agreements elaborated by our thought.  When I draw, there is no disagreement, no expectation, no prejudice. Nothing that can oppose. Identity issues are abandoned and the trait carries within it the vital movement that precedes any story. The first aspiration. The initial and singular breathing where everything is welcomed.  It is in consciousness that I continue the experience of the simple and vagabond trait to anchor in me its original vibration, tame its source and give it matter.  I give the time and flexibility necessary for this mutation so that the line becomes a living relief capable of colliding with our time. And the line to change scale, to expand, to be colored, to leap, to blend, to disappear, to better respond to the emotion that gave birth to it as the injunction of the moment.  If the format and the digital cutting are faithful supports to the spirit of the drawing, the chosen material is emissary of the line, spokesperson of its simplicity, its light echo which tells us that everything is for the best.

ARCHEOLOGY OF SENSES

After studying plastic arts in London, it took me 20 years to reconnect with creation. My work is therefore above all the fruit of a latency, a gestation. It is born in silence and responds to these immobile moments that "gather our pieces" forgetting the agreements elaborated by our thought.

When I draw, there is no disagreement, no expectation, no prejudice. Nothing that can oppose. Identity issues are abandoned and the trait carries within it the vital movement that precedes any story. The first aspiration. The initial and singular breathing where everything is welcomed.

It is in consciousness that I continue the experience of the simple and vagabond trait to anchor in me its original vibration, tame its source and give it matter.

I give the time and flexibility necessary for this mutation so that the line becomes a living relief capable of colliding with our time. And the line to change scale, to expand, to be colored, to leap, to blend, to disappear, to better respond to the emotion that gave birth to it as the injunction of the moment.

If the format and the digital cutting are faithful supports to the spirit of the drawing, the chosen material is emissary of the line, spokesperson of its simplicity, its light echo which tells us that everything is for the best.
