About This Project

The artists approach is a continuation of his research on captivity and movement. These two themes at the antipodes are at the very heart of his vocabulary. These antagonists nourish constant experimentation in desire to infuse sensuality with the raw material that is metal. The materials are chosen for their plastic and aesthetic qualities,  their durability as well as for affinity to fire.  It is this attribute which allows the master piece to unfold.   To deploy in the space a minimum of material, by the expression of exuberant movements, at the limits of equilibrium, questions the notions of gravity and stability. Gesture is the genesis of the meeting of movement in confrontation with matter in space. Art makes sense only when it lives in the perception of the other. In this respect, it must be public.
