Everything began with the experience of tearing apart, then isolation and finally gentleness. Giving free rein to my imagination and letting my own weaknesses and those of the surrounding world filter through, I stored up the inspiration which I needed to begin to create.
My technique is original, and came to me before, during and after having felt such frailty. I work with resin at its different stages, sculpting and painting it on my canvases. Creating the unexpected my work has developed around three cycles or themes.
Theme 1: Tthe destructive cycle: ?flat? canvases with cracked resin.
My work reflects life?s struggles and uncertainties by a fragile dimension represented by a perpetual movement, with no direction. This frailty is symbolised by scars, fractures even burns. Like every being, the world crosses these stages
I interpret this frailty as an emotion which can be felt everywhere by every being. It is found in every form because everything is perpetually changing Frailty is also a state which I believe is found in the five elements of Chinese philosophy: water, air, fire, earth and metal, which I use to create my works.
Theme 2: Renewal: canvases with relief.
Frailty is marked in my works by gashes and tears. However the strong relief creates a balance between the two materialities allowing life and hope to come through. These reliefs prefigure a birth and a rebirth with a growing power. They are also the reflection of creative strength. Living hands handling elements with subjective animal or geometrical creations.
Thus the material in relief provides a new richness which offsets the weakness and sometimes even surpasses it
Theme 3: Female spirit: canvases with relief and the subjective portrayal of the female body.
The woman springs from chaos, life. She fills the vacuum and gives reality to the world which surrounds us. She pursues her path and movement right to the end, overcoming trials with strength and calmness. This sensibility is expressed by woman, the master source. From frailty comes power. A source of well-being she gives a direction and meaning to the elements she handles. I create forms in her image by combining the five elements of water, air, earth, water fire and metal. From a rigid material energetically spring the curves of life, shapes form in unexpected places revealing, between the lines and the shadows that everything is possible.
The body and the spirit are seen in every impulse of life
I seek to recreate the intensity of life?s transformations from simple shapes or statutes. My goal is to make the shapes more living whilst keeping the aesthetic of their initial shapes. Living and aesthetic, these works give my themes brilliance combined with great modernity. In one movement my three favourite themes combine in the monumentalism of the material.
Conclusion: The portrayals of the world are an internal renewal: cultural, political, spiritual, artistic ... My work is part of this renewal of the portrayals and proposes a vision of the world which itself is in movement. The dynamic incarnation of the reality and dialogue between East and West, my canvases embody strengths and weakness giving a shape to the vertigo of life and free expression to its soft and stormy transformations. In each tear, the hope of a renewal, unexpected, sometimes even stronger shimmers through.
