It is through movement that I experiment and transpose my feelings. It’s my way to go further and feel life.
I grew up in an iconoclastic artist’s family. When it was time for me to choose, curiously I decided to study science, maybe to rebel against my origins, or perhaps simply because I believed I would find more answers in that area of expertise.
After graduating in vet medicine, I turned to a more alternative way of curing living beings: osteopathy. I discovered that good health was a question of good balance, and that it meant touching and feeling in order to restore the movement of tissues. For 13 years now I have developed an original manual practice around race horses and their jockeys, travelling all over Europe to prepare them for the races.
During this period, I searched for a way to express the feelings I had while practicing my manual therapy. That is how painting entered my life.
In 2013, I destroyed the walls of my Parisian cellar to make my first workshop. It was a breakthrough! It was the perfect place to finally develop my skills painting, and to write down my feelings.
I treat horses like I work my paintings. It is all about feeling and balance. There are a lot of similarities between these two practices: I work until I feel a good global movement, I restore it or reinforce it until - the body in one case, the canvas in the other -, perfect balance is attained.
The goal I set myself in my artistic quest is to transcribe and to try to create movement through form, texture and color. Though it seems unreachable, the path is endlessly fascinating…
