Artist's Work

On the Edge

    Work introduction

    I started diving after - and not before - working on my shapes and ways. All artists they create
    something from air and water fantasied that never exist before. Indeed, my sculptures are as organic
    like paleontological forms as they are cosmic, and this is because I show an adamant curiosity for
    the origins of the universe. I love sciences, and the more sculptures are, the closer I feel to finding
    some answers. After all, I feel like a baroque artist and I aspire to create a contemporary baroque
    symphony, something complicated, mystic, alive and immersing in another dimension.
    My sculptures as well inspired by Russian Avant-garde, the ever-present air of Utopia (always think
    of Tatlin and Malevitch, two Russian artists that I adore) and desire to reconstruct on the edge of
    ecology et civilisation, constructivism and cosmos in order to build an other art …
