I break, cut, tear up and glue, sew, assemble, and gather together diverse materials to elaborate my pieces. I find inspiration in mineral, organic, aquatic and electrical environments. I set up collections of places through drawings, and I express, through sculpture, the strength of the gesture and the history contained in these pieces of reality. My work raises questions about natural elements, the landscape’s power struggle. Paradoxical and ambiguous, its impact is to challenge the viewer’s experience, and to arouse curiosity, desire and interpretation.
