Although figurative and realistic in appearance, the context in which I place my sculptures reveals new layers, questions, mystifies. The materials and techniques I use vary depending on the concept, sometimes I directly construct with steel. Usually I build a model out of wax or clay, then mould and cast out of metal, plaster of polyester. This ensures the dynamism and vivacity I can get with a soft and flexible material. Pure and alluring, sometimes even glittering my sculptures catch your eye but reflect a light that is puzzling, enigmatic.
