Presentation

For several years my work has been revolving around the subjective perception of time and space through a questioning of the notions of exile, wandering, memory and lived time. It is likely that this interest reflects a personal experience marked by repeated uprooting.

Each project becomes a new opportunity to try to raise some questions or hypotheses about the interstitial time that makes up the trip, the same that is marked by the traveler's experience, his memories, his relationship with oblivion, doubt or the notion of reality.

I'm interested in complementary borders between the visible and the invisible, the tangible and the random, the outward and return routes, to finally question our relationship to life, the idea of presence and absence, memory and reminiscence, the passage time.

Formally my work is divided between two distinct yet complementary practices: a compulsive, intimate and quotidian drawing, which I use as a database that allows me to sort my memories, archive my doubts, my fears, in order to look to the horizon quietly discharged from all internal tensions. On the other hand, a more conceptual work that draws on this raw material to transform it into artwork that is not only emotional, but that combines the four main areas of my work: history, statistics, affection and psyche.
