Concerned with the environmental emergency, I question through my sculpture, and I insist on the importance of the preservation of fauna and the flora. I try to highlight the splendor of animals, the humanity of men, but also their precariousness in this world. To this end, I use clay to sculpt animals and humans in a figurative way. I have been modeling for about twenty years. I like the research of volumes and forms, I refer a lot to anatomy books. With or without a model, the positions and movements come to me through sketches. I work the material by touch, by addition, by successive layers, with the knife for a precise and nervous modeling. Starting from a fine base, which serves as a framework for my sculpture, to arrive at the final form. Sometimes I scratch the clay to find its grain or I hit it with a stick. Smooth patches appear and some shapes are forgotten, the sculpture becomes simpler. At other times, parts of the body disappear, my pieces fragment, I skin my models, I force the eye of the spectator to fill the gaps. This in order to show the precariousness of the existence of each one.
My work is optimistic, the faces are smiling or dreaming, I have confidence in man and his ability to rebound. I hope that when the viewer encounters my pieces, they provoke surprise, that they reveal a new message when one turns around, that they give off an atmosphere, an emotion, a feeling.
