The four elements, source of inspiration and active tools of my creation, accompany my work as a sculptor on a daily basis.
With the complicity and the omnipresent force of fire. Fire gives life to metal sculptures. Through its heat which welds, bends, or shapes; patinates the recalcitrant steel, it is the essential energy for the abstract idea to take life, form and become.
The earth, matrix, nourishes my sculpture. By “delivering” the metal, the stones or the clay, it inhabits and inspires it.
Water, discreet worker, leaves its traces. These worn stones, these traces of oxidation or evaporation on the metal, are the witnesses of this essential element which inspires certain forms by its movement.
The lightness of air is often expressed by the symbolism of feathers, a soft, often fragile energy in contrast with steel.
