"It is an intimate and personal botanical place, in perfect silence..."
“What I would like to represent is plants’ life, having the energy of plant nature, which is very pure, infinite, and warm.
Sometimes, I also insert an imaginary character in my works, one who would not only like to recharge himself with the energy of life by the force of the microcosm, but who would even like to resemble it, merge into it, whose image arouses curiosity.
My work is about finding a plant food microcosm to which we belong. I watch and observe vegetables that inspire me in scenes where we humans are also part.
For this, I use every day’s life food: cabbage, ginger, potato, carrot tops, chili, etc., in order to express the universe of my imagination, to reconcile several different images. Sharing this strange world with the viewer is a plus.”
