The square heads
Tracing paper men
Very tiny sizes
My works are allegories of our world and human relations. However, I do not work with an aim of delivering a message. In fact things in me need to be expressed and I can never determine that in advance. Sometimes I let my hand be guided, sometimes I draw in my head before taking the felt. It is only after I am brought to reflect on the direction of each drawing. I love the strange beings, pretence to come from another world. My characters often have a kind of deformity which is always accompanied by a search for harmony.
My influences are very diversified... and it's not easy to name them. My great pleasure is to randomly divide into sheets the art books of the Beaubourg bookshop. All interests me: photograph, Web-art, painting, drawings...
I like to vary the formats, the concepts, the supports... that goes from the tracing paper to paper to grain, of inks sharp to the fine felt...
The scanner and the numerical apparatus cannot unfortunately represent all subtleties visible with the naked eye, do not hesitate to contact me to see my drawings in flesh and inks - that you are a potential buyer, galerist or simple art lover.
The principal goal of my work: to make come from the emotions, the feelings... to challenge !
Some technical points:
- That the names of the drawings do not slow down you in your imagination. In fact, at the base they do not have a name. I chose them afterwards, intuitively.
- I make frame each work before his sale.
- Lastly, I carry out very good pullings on printer of works which you wish. To contact me...
