My practice questions the frenzied life of a society under siege and under stress from all sides. Whether political, religious or cultural, it is through mediation on major subjects such as the environment, identity, population movements and accommodations that I seek to create a eurhythmic, interrogative and suggestive artwork all together.
The result of this research led me to a narrative approach exploring both the abstract and the figurative through multiple aspects of painting and printmaking. By experimenting with the possibilities of installation, the active participation of the public and numeric diversity, I deepen my approach and I inflict on myself a new environment orchestrated with new unpredictable elements, upsetting, influencing and updating my way of thinking by this adequacy reflecting the eventuality found within our society.
Influenced by current events and the multifaceted structures omnipresent in nature, architecture and robotics, my work is distinguished by a rhythmic and progressive orchestration of forms weaving a constant dialogue between geometry and organic. This metamorphosis generates a perpetual mutation from one work to another.
