« The portrait »

Basic search from the essential to the outcome of timelessness. Such is my personal search on this course.

The portrait has always been omnipresent in the development of my sculptures. It is in this context that I make them succeed, in the thinness of a slice of stone, which will concretize itself in the duality of a coded memory, in black marble and bronze.

It is this initial thinness that is like that Egyptian mummy that has pursued me through the mists of time.

Flow process of the portrait and of the monumental self-portrait in all its power where the work must form a unit with me like that of any true artist.
