Note

Hybridization, collisions, stylization… new forms emerge from these processes. What is familiar is transformed into ambiguous objects. I go on exploring signs and elements of language, making variations on fluctuating themes, composing objects that stand between figuration and abstraction, seduction and repulsion, irony and lightness.

With the means of sculpture, my images are colourful, playful, with a certain monumentality contrasting with a sense of humour. I juggle with forms and materials, looking for a balance to embody immaterial phenomenons.

The objects arise from different sources : picotgramms, comicbooks, adventure movies, childhood… Drawing is the first step, volume will enhance the ideas and disturb the points of reference.
