Born in Bayonne in 1981, I grew up in a family of artists. If some people choose the life of an artist as a reaction against their bourgeois upbringing, I did exactly the opposite, and very quickly left my two artist mothers, abandoning them to their bohemian lifestyle to pursue my studies in the sciences. But one never completely abandons one's past, and after completing a PhD in veterinary medicine as well as a degree in osteopathy, I returned to my origins through painting.
What is the origin of life? The meaning of existence? And what is there after death? The infinite, time... These so-called existential questions have fascinated me ever since I was a teenager; not so much because of the mysteries they conceal, but because of the fact that they transcend genders and cultures; they encompass all of humanity.
My painting questions all of this. It attempts to create a link between things, to bring principles together, to find connections and relationships that might at first seem hidden. In it I blend abstract concepts, mathematics, inherited from my scientific training, with traces gleaned from a primitive intuition of the body.
My work involves notions of time, space, origin, and movement, and tries to bring them together in confrontation on different levels, similar to a magic cauldron in which, as during an alchemical process, one mixes various ingredients to obtain a result that transcends the sum of the individual components. And so, I hope to unveil a secret hidden in our beings by summoning the principle of serendipity.
I substitute the technique that I didn't study with the creation of tools fashioned according to my needs: paints made of felt pens, mutant paint brushes, wooden toothed scrapers, or razor blades; everything seems appropriate to be used as a creative instrument. My painting is a vast space of freedom: and it even often literally flows beyond the frame.
Experiment, seek, investigate, always moved by the question of the LINK. Because this attempt to highlight it seems all the more urgent as it appears to be cruelly lacking in our societies today.
