Art is for me a free expression of the mind and senses. It opens the door of imagination to make sense of it. It is the expression of unconscious experiences and for this reason there will never be one single meaning given to a work but only the meaning that each of us puts in it.
Horizon 2030 reflects a horizon which seems to be far away but with the constant change and the acceleration of our societies, it’s becoming closer. Always go faster, be even more efficient at any price. The state of change is more than ever a constant, which is a paradox as a constant should be stable but it’s not the case.
Nothing is predefined but everything is possible : a form that transcends an existing framework to extract an infinity of possibilities, source of innovation, a color that seeks to make the work emotionally intense, a rupture that reflects a state of change, that of the environment or that of the world around us.
Everything is possible, such as my brush strokes that follow a free abstract movement in search of a perfect balance, the one between the colors, the lines, the shapes, the tensions, the emotions and my own vision.
