The common thread
After a carreer change, I explore since october 2009 the many possible use of tissue. I am using only used textiles to be recycled into a new perspective , another dimension. I combine them with other materials such as pastel, acrylic and graphite.
I use cloth as a tool for emotion, in turn calling a fantasy world inhabited with strange animals , organic or inorganic forms .Sometimes fragile or exuberant, the fiber is tied, intertwines, overlaps, fray, or exposes its colors faded by wear. The fabric is framed or seeks to devour the surface of the canvas.
I am telling each time a story, an inner landscape : introspection. The world around me is a subject of endless inspiration. I am integrating it, distorting it ,appropriating it .I am dwelling in it and i am a part of it. Thoses traces i am leaving on the canvas show my way. They are the memory of the moment already registered in the past.
