I live in Rodez in the Aveyron. Self-taught I’ve been drawing since childhood. I go back and forth between drawing, painting, sculpture, and installations. I claim my freedom to create what I feel by addressing very modestly in this plastic work, suffering, illness, death, passion, enjoyment, life. I draw my inspiration from my inner revolt, my anger, my sorrow, but also my joys that become my creative material. I do not claim any chapel, no particular movement. Eight years ago, I put the painting on hold to devote myself exclusively to drawing.
I work by series. Free Association Series, Organic Composition Series and Family Portraits series.
For the latter, I dip my hands in the photographic archives of my own family and I make a choice to appropriate for a time this frozen reality. The anecdotes awaken memories imbued with melancholy, joy, tenderness or sadness barely concealed at the evocation of the living dead in the images.
I turn into a new story and sometimes unsavory but, always with a certain jubilation, a scene that was fixed in time as if to make a nose to the passing years.
I am aware that my drawings can echo proven family stories, fantasized or kept secret.
