My work focuses on visual narration. My works are often connected to personal stories, related in the first person. Whether autobiographical or fictional the narration focuses on the representation of reality and true experiences.

A vision of damaged, fragmented, transformed reality, just as my brain, my memory, my feelings encode, transform, conceal or crystallize what I experience.

I present a mental universe, whether mine or fictitious, a human worldview, intimate therefore imperfect, facing obsessions, forgetfulness, sometimes insanity. A vision of reality that the brain has turned into a big smashed mirror.
