"Representation and its artifice."
"Between the fluid and the immutable, a trace crystallizes. In the memory of this absence, the imprint is preserved in memory and gesture. This mark, echoing the disappearance, is transposed into the light line of a trace, first furtive, then increasingly assured, finally circumscribing itself in the trajectory of the present moment.
Through the reconstitution of memory, I study the singularity of nature's harmonious order, as much as the cyclical and ephemeral particularity of its concrete forms.
The intimate, symbolic and atavistic relationship that the individual has with nature extends my reflection and generates a correspondence between the splitting of the image and the paradoxical belief of an altered, fragmented and yet constantly recomposable universe.
I'm particularly fascinated by the entanglement, fragile balance and harmony of proportions found in nature, through which fractal geometry underscores the existence of a specific, repetitive code.
These components are sometimes constructed and sometimes deconstructed, interfering with each other, or coming to life in a complex relationship that, on many levels, achieves mathematical, philosophical or spiritual rigor.
From organic to gaseous, from waves to ripples, from buds to canopies, these materials evoke states of transition which, through their transfiguration, symbolize the reappropriation of a nature that is distant, forgotten, asleep, but above all and more than ever essential."
