"Landscapes with industrial inspiration, whose vague shapes seem to be dispersed in an atmosphere, which is at the same time leaden and radiant, my factories evoke the blurredness of a crepuscular photography."

My pictorial works result from different techniques, which have been elaborated in a personal and empirical manner. Landscapes with industrial inspiration, whose vague shapes seem to be dispersed in an atmosphere, which is at the same time leaden and radiant, my factories evoke the blurredness of a crepuscular photography. It is by a mixed technique, using natural pigments, charcoal and black soft lead pencil ("pierre noire"), that these productions propose a vision imbued with strangeness of subjects as ordinary as factories, electricity pylons or railway tracks… Here, the line is of importance, it is all-present, the vertebra of "factories" and the one anchoring them to their ground, it is the one who leads my course of action in the fidelity to a reduced range both of the technique (pigments, charcoal, “pierre noire” pencil on acrylic painting) and of the support (paper, canvas, wood and supports from different salvages).
