I work on the idea of difference, on the theme of abandonment, of loss and recovery of something. I use waste materials, my art is made of nothing. I privilege the case and chase it with my eyes, every day. I chase an idea of fragile, transient art. What interests me is its being a vehicle for a message, an emotion.
I love collage immediate communication that is at the same time refined and intellectual. I love books and all kinds of paper. The collage for me is a parallel language to the spoken or written.
I have a rule in my work: when an image affects my eyes for more than 5 minutes I am sure that sooner or later it will become a part of my collages.
