Here is my credo and I make it from scrap items !
Recycling is very exciting when it comes to bringing back abandoned materials. It seems to me that to recover it, to see a new form and a new meaning, is to respect it again. The walks become a treasure hunt and each small object thrown away, abandoned, will find its place in the final puzzle of a sculpture or a robot.
The raw material is (unfortunately) infinite, and I like to imagine that this gesture of recycling material thrown into an object of art also challenges us on our way of life.
Autodidact assumed, I am passionated about the evocation provoked by the work of material devoted to oblivion, and by its echo often different, in each person ...
The constraint of diverting these objects from their usual uses is very artistically stimulating. It is sometimes a breath of fantasy that is born of debris. Sometimes the manifestation of waste in their most symptomatic form of our consumer society. Creating these sculptures is for me infusing urban Fantasy into our daily life. This fantasy can be dark, tortured, strange, funny, and it must above all stimulate the imagination and question our modes of consumption.
Create poetry in the rubbish and restore life from oblivion.
I invite you to sail between my characters, without scratching you here and there on the rusty nails that drag.
