Statement

My own work consists in representing fragile organic elements with ambiguity while preserving their subtlety. The elements I choose are part of my everyday environment. I select a specific angle, or a fragment of the element, and modify its scale. This allows me to manipulate its meanings and to show it for what it is: a shape, a texture, a colour scheme. I sometimes produce several images of a single subject, or print different versions of a single image. This way, I can make the images interact with each other to highlight either their symbolism, the quality of their drawing, or the repetition of motifs and patterns. My work also explores subtle interplays between the represented object, the precision of depiction, and the specificities of the medium itself. My images are often set within wide empty spaces, lending them a serenity that invites contemplation.
