About This Project

His work favors above all the simplicity of the forms, using if possible those which are pure creations of the man (Homo sapiens): circles, squares, triangles, ellipses, without forgetting the straight line as well as the volumes which derive from it. They are not found in nature, at least not perfectly, but they reveal and substantiate all the poetry and infinite beauty of pure geometry. Geometric contemplation finds its foundation when the forms of nature become symbols of the metaphysical principles that govern creation and evolution. Feminine and masculine, symbolized here by the circle and the square, are, in essence, opposed and incompatible. Yet, their encounter is essential to the sublime pursuit of creation.
