My artistic work, whether drawing or print, geometrical or figurative, attempts to express what belongs to the senses, to touch our humanity with evocative and emotional work. I proceed to do this by challenging the well accepted theory that contrasting concepts (dark/light, mass/lightness, line/surface…), stand as polar opposites and, consequently, that we live in a world of extremes and of exclusion.

I like to think that the intentional oscillation between opposing concepts mirrors our human condition. The work might be destabilizing in that it brings us away from the comfort of established norms and strict definitions and closer to our fundamental nature: one of ambivalence and continuous transformation.
