“I paint universal figures, industrial landscapes, indefinite terrains, damaged cars, demolished houses, monkeys either in solitude or as silhouettes against an ornamental background, forms in a “pochoir” process, visual elements juxtaposed against medium or large formats painted in acrylic on canvas as well as medium or small works on metal, paper, and wood.
My work starts as a random process: collage, dripping, pasted, material either added or incised. Then I begins the addition of representative figures by treating the surface – sanding and scraping – to retain the material presence in my painting. My work is about addition as well as subtraction. To begin with, the idea that is the sub-text of my painting is not necessarily logical or complex in order to serve as a concrete starting point.
My painting is made from lucid intentions as well as impulses felt and experienced. I use iconography but also a whole world confused by aspirations et tendencies that beg to be made into an image. My works are composed of infinitely diverse elements that come together to create a unified image.”
