Artist Statement

I think, I memorize and I structure compositions that proposes a link to time and space. Deep into the act of painting, I free my inner pulsions on the canvas and I create a gesture that paints rythm and make the scenes vibrate under color. I then add calligraphy to the artwork that shares my deepest intimate reflexions.
