Lives and works in Geneva

“My works are structured according to various dichotomies: abstraction/figuration, personal imagery/official culture and model/copy. They are the material manifestation of memory, not of melancholy or mourning, but of radical potential. The art process gives evidence of a state of permanent metamorphosis, an intermingling of objects and reference systems. It is a three dimensional expression and a way of releasing ourselves from logical chronologies, and linear temporality.”
