‘PURE FORMS FOR PURE EMOTIONS’
Sculpture is a stimulation of senses, a game of perception playing with emotions. Pure lines for pure emotions. I draw subtile lines combined with dynamic surfaces researching harmony and sensuality. I bring the lines to their essence and model the matter as I would caress a woman’s skin.
The marble looks soft as if I would have folded it with my hands. My forms are light like the smoke of a cigarette dancing in the air. Then texture add more character and elegance. The light impact on pure forms with voluptuous textures create an alchemy to catch your attention and surprise your perception. The polarity of each piece give them a single identity, a balance between the space and the elements, a dialogue between what you see and what you feel.

The lines which direct my research of sculptor are very simple:
Sensuality, Harmony, Humour and the Paradox.
Sensuality is synonym with of Sculpture. Sensuality is this intense sensation which encourage your hand to caress the object of your desire.
Harmony is the straight relation with nature.. The perfect balance of everything, Yin and Yang.
Humour is this extra thing which makes you smile.
The Paradox … I love the metaphysical relation with material. The paradox is in the strange relation between those abstract forms which always bring us to look for any figurative form known, as if the mind have to find words to identify or define and hardly let pure and essential sensations drive our perception of the form.
In conclusion, Sculpture is an interaction of spaces, occupied and empty, a balance between what you see and what you don’t see.
