Technician in the industry of the Graphic Arts during numerous years, I was always fascinated by these rags of workshop(studio) dirtied with ink and these sheets(leaves) of regulation many a time rehearsed(ironed) in machine and on which squeezed colors composing in the passage of unpredictable graphics(handwrittings).
This waste for the others, was for me as so many unpredictable but always imperfect works, prefiguring landscapes féériques, improbable characters, unfinished abstractions.
I forced then the fate, and to added knocks of spatulas(spoon-bills) or rollers to try to finish, in a sense, these sketches which arose from the work.
It is quite naturally that I eventually diverted(hijacked) these materials(subjects), trying to impose them my visions.
I use now virgin papers, typographic ink (primary colors only), which I work with brushes (as well the hairs as the sleeves) and tools that I make in diverse materials(subjects) according to my needs (spatulas(spoon-bills), rollers, etc.).
