STATEMENT

 

My work associates paintings, sculptures and videos. With an open and boundless approach, I propound an entirely borne perception of our societal surrounding.

 

Since 2005, I studied the economical matter in our societies and the intricacy of law and regulations. I started to create paintings showing slogans about money. The 2006 Series Credit History acknowledges the disproportion between the hypnotic stage of spending and its reality. Following this, I studied the notion of memory into structured financial environments to explore why societies always forget the past and recreate a new reality. My reflection has been translated into the Series, Hide and Scratch. I was captivated by the denial of the facts and how new organized structures where able to make people forget.

In 2008, from the economical matter and his fall, I moved onto the political consequences of the economic collapse and created the series, Slightly Reasonable to explore the notion of protectionism (physically and economically speaking).
My work has always been nourished by laws and regulations which are often hidden behind political interventions and despotisms. I created large paintings showing borders between several countries and their upcoming expansion. Unfortunately, 7 years later the reality has reached the fiction.

In 2010-2011, I extended the series, Extremely Unlikely, to link the human nature with regulations and study the upcoming second economical downturn. Financial organized structures have become bigger than ever and are on the rise of self destruction due to their complex organization.

Since 2012, I introduce an animal figure to symbolize human nature. I want to show how the high level of economical and geopolitical complexity inhibits the inner survival process in every individual due to his subordination to a group entity.

I jump from one series to another to develop and adapt its thematic to the current situation. The light colors, lines, and manufactured style of the sculptures and paintings are used to enhance the standardization of thinking. They are a perfect product of consumption with an approach which points toward the near future. The videos are the personalization of the thematics developed in the paintings, sculptures and installations.
