My sculptures are all about the human being and being human.
Humans in a world free of codes, free of conventions,
free of standards, free of constraints.
Humans born with a pure joy for life.
The figures symbolise people
sharing joy, wonder or
just a moment in time.
Their shapes are loose,
organic versions of people.
Their anatomy is
distinct, free from ideals,
soft and approachable.
attracts, pulls in, invites to come closer,
I hope they convey a sense of belonging,
trigger some memories,
preferably good ones.
What makes humans such a particular animal ?
How are we different from other animal species ?
Is what I ask myself very often.
When I work I let my hands create,
create spontaneous forms,
putting my head on hold.
Later I will use my head,
to materialise what my hands have created
as closely as possible.
Finding a balance of the essential forms,
erasing some but not too much,
going through an internal fight of
keeping the initial energy, vitality and spontaneity
and accepting their non conformity.
