Artist Statement

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mystery”

Albert Einstein

FEEL BEYONG THINGS

 I have the feeling of being connected to something greater than myself, to the movements of life that vibrate in every object of nature through creative gestures. I awaken the vital energy of the vibrant traces in an abstract universe. I am inspired by this tangible encounter between lines, shapes, textures and sometimes even the landscape. My intention is to create a living artistic heritage in connection with the preciousness of nature and life. By keeping the natural traces in the act of creation and sharing the dialogue between matter and perception, I embrace the world in the present moment.

TRACING THE ROOTS OF THE INVISIBLE IN THE WORK

I leave spaces to breathe in the mystery and anchor the invisible using impasto, transparencies and inks left in my works of printmaking, painting and collage. Printmaking firmly roots the imprints left by the mystery of creation and saves the traces of a present that is mine. Overlay textures obtain fine lines and create atmospheres conducive to contemplation. Painting and collage leave room for spontaneity and intuition, to create movements on the surface and offer different windows (or different breaths) for the work in progress. As well I prepare backgrounds in colored ink on Japanese paper and integrate them onto my prints with the chine-collé process.

INSPIRED BY THE MYSTERIES OF CREATION

Nature is full of secrets where colors and textures intermingle using their strength and fragility, which may merge at any time when we take the time to perceive with our five senses. It is these mysterious elements that I capture and often reveal in my works: natural hollows of trees, intertwined roots, rough surface of rocks, barks, passage of the moon, fluidity and the transparency of water and wind.

IT WAS ONCE THE WORDS

For some time now, words have found their place through the ink, paint and collages that I have created. I like to express myself with lines, shapes and textures and develop an inspiring vocabulary. I invite you to dive deeper into this ardent desire and to discover the outcome of what will be born by the creative gesture. It is therefore through these different artistic processes, deployed intuitively, that I allow myself to initiate the connection between the artist, the material and my unique perception of the universe. The junction of faults, lines and textures, a deep part of oneself, and a living element of nature, are regularly revealed in the little artist’s books that I create with vitality.
