Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Over the years my work has gradually focused on the theme I like best, the human figure and more particularly the nude.
The representation of the body is, for me, an inexhaustible field of study.
I like the ideas of tension and movement, using compositions where the body seems either to stretch, to fall or to huddle up.
I also like to emphasize the tension within the body by drawing contorted torsos, sharp shoulders or strong and nervous hands.
I try to balance the powerful tension thus created with quieter areas in the painting where the eye can rest. Mixing these two opposing elements aims at creating a certain dynamism which brings the painting to life...just like a human being

Depuis plusieurs années mon travail se concentre essentiellement sur la figure humaine et plus particulièrement sur le thème du nu.

La représentation du corps est pour moi un domaine de recherche inépuisable.

J’aime associer corps et mouvement à l’aide de compositions où le corps s’élance, tombe ou se recroqueville. J’aime l’idée de tension dans les corps : une tortion d’un buste, une épaule saillante, des mains fortes et nerveuses. Je contrebalance cette tension et cette force avec des zones de calme où l’oeil se repose. Par cette opposition j’essaye de créer un dynamisme qui rend le tableau vivant, à l’image du corps humain.
