I am passionate about the exploration of liquid substances enabling the combination and the fusion of paints among themselves. I like discovering what substance contains, what substance hides. I create according to what substance reveals to me on the support and according to what I inflict on it through prints.

Concrete and yet fascinating phenomenon appear as well a certain plastic ambiguity. And I like to play with this plastic ambiguity, which raises an important part of mystery. I like to provoke a formal ambiguity. The way I work (through unstickings and prints on paper sheets) attempts to produce an alchemic world with an underground mineral almost organic appearance, which gives the sensation of penetrating into an interior space or a wonderfull lanscape.

"No daydreaming without ambivalence, no ambivalence without daydreaming. However, water is successively contemplated in its emollient role and in its agglomerate role. Forms end, substance never does. Substance is the scheme of infinite dreams." - Gaston Bachelard

From the substance combinations, aqueous mixes and prints that I perform raises a peculiar world with a mineral, organic and vegetal aspect, which recalls the Origin : the origin of substance generating Creation.
