What is so special for you in the decay and passage of time?
Decay and passage of time are not really interesting to me. It’s the largest view of life. Why are we on the Earth and where will we go after death? Who lived here and what was his life like? Each degradation tell: “hey can you see me, I have been there !”. Each degradation returns a life. And especially, it leads to reflection in imaginary stories.
I must say that erosion or passage of time is something that I am curious about but I’ve never been fascinated by. Maybe from the side connected with nostalgia. Isn’t that what you want to convey to the viewers?
Yes, it could be nostalgia and more. Curiosity. But beware, no melancholy. I don’t try to show something but to generate memories or imaginary stories. When archaeology discovers traces of the past, it’s a party, a moment of pleasure
Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from my pleasure of doing something with my hands. I love to make, repair, tinker… it’s a necessity. Playing with texture and of course with colours. I have to let my hands make little by little. It’s why I can’t do figurative art. Materials and colours decide I’m only a guide. I can’t follow a plan. So when I begin work, I don’t know where I’m going to arrive. It’s like opening a gift.
