/ about /

I search intriguing and confusing shapes that involve perceptual issues.
Frictions occur between reality and appearances. Boundaries with fiction remain unclear, time and memories are blurred.

Beyond what the works show, I focus on the sensations they produce: absorption, detachment, strain, floating, etc.
I imagine the experience of the viewer to look like a destabilizing flow, that brings him closer or away to the work.
I strive to make the spectator feel powerless to grasp what he is facing or to determine at what he is “really” looking.
I expect meanings to appear progressively, as if they were covered by a veil that requests patience and empathy to be lifted.
