Artist statement

« The encounter of two people is similar to the contact of two chimical substances. If there is a reaction, they both transform. » (Carl Gustav Jung)

Inspired by apparently antinomic materials, which give birth to surprising encounters, I create compositions which aim at giving life to matter, through imitation or collage, through the mixing or juxtaposition of elements coming from nature or artifacts. I am in need of mixing, color-blending which relates to my multiple origines, an island of sonority, colors, where the night is inhabitated by tales. In my every day life, beyond selective recycling, I indulge, guided by my emotions, in an improvised domestic sorting based on color, shape or texture. This is a first gathering of materials, completed by the seeds and waste I collect or pick up on my way. I welcome strangeness when it erases normality, but for the sake of a balance which is true to past encounters. The worn out enhances the new, the natural embraces the artificial, the illusory consumes the real, the mundane and the noble mix with each other, in the interplay of brushes which splash or melt, of hammers which wrinkle, of clamps which wring and distort. The glue fixes, and becomes color or matter, among the lids, capsules, plugs, nets, exotic bark, which try to escape the sprayers. The juxtaposition of elements plunges me into the magic of their encounter.
