Artist Statement

Using different media, I place drawing as a central language, as a research and exploration stimulus, as a dialogue between the creation and the spectator. I am interested in discovering the strength and the autonomy existing in a line and shape.

 

I aim to create illusions that place the work in a territory where the limits of space, of architecture and of temporality are questioned whatever applies to paper surface or the concrete wall.

 

Simultaneously, these researches are combined with an interest in biologic and geologic elements. More specifically by still movements and changes that modify a space or a landscape (as tectonic plates or crustacean invaders). These actions are not domesticated or controlled. They can efficiently change the perception of a surface in a place or a landscape.

 

Bringing these elements to the drawing work create confrontation between organic and geologic structure, between abstraction and reality, between natural phenomenon and human fabrication. I use systems of dichotomy as a method to describe my praxis
