My art is based on reduction. It can be see as a stark clarification of things found in reality or created with reality as a model. These are the items that I make to expose or identify characters through material concentration. In the process of configuration I convert and reunite them once again. The process of composition emphasizes geometry, mathematics and the relationship to their own being. It's about relating to a strong variability in the artistic process, and a constant investigation into the transformation of the individual item.
