Approach

In my practice, I explore the heritage of the human in that it is different from that of the animal or the artificial intelligence. Different themes feed my creation including dream, mythology, symbol. My exploration is done through different media (painting, sculpture, collage, printmaking, textile, embroidery, installation), but always based on the living model. The sketches made during the live model drawing sessions are directly supporting and inspiring and transforming my work. I thus divert the usual codes of the sketch of the living model (sobriety, monochrome, details) to illustrate with many colors and media the richness of the human experience.
