LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I am a visual artist and I want to find the balance between artistic creation and the messages.
I graduated in 1991 in graphic & product design at the School of Design Industriel E.S.D.I in Paris and I organized artistic workshops in different schools with young children for 10 years. I was expatriated in China for 5 years and currently live near Paris.
Much of my artistic practice consists of translating the observation of the Human and his relationship with the world around him into a personal experience, a contemplation of life, its complexity, its beauty, its fragility and its resilience.
By creating metaphorical works, I gradually deepen this work of observation.
Such as the presence of the danger, the risk in the "Borderline" project. The being's delicateness and its complexity in the "Au Fil Des Mots" project. The difficulty of personal development in the "Itinéraires" project. The awareness of the responsibility for our choices and our actions in the "Réfléchissons-y" project ...
The public is invited to be surprised and feel the physical or psychic manifestations through my artworks.
My artistic work tends to be a simple, delicate and repetitive aesthetic representation where harshness, violence, sadness, pain, opacity rub shoulders with delicacy, gentleness, joy, well-being, transparency, lightness ... the wealth of all lives.
The materials I mainly use are paper, fiber and metal, which mostly come from waste. I reinvest the stories by exploring and magnifying their symbolic charges. It allows me to convey some metaphors. For example, rusty metal embodies the passing of time and abandonment. The recycled paper pulp from food packaging represents the density and the inalterability of concrete. Silk symbolizes our deeper self, anodized copper wire evokes energy, tension, while paper fiber (such as Washi type) evokes the notion of purity, of life ...
