Artist Statement
Lines are everywhere in the urban area. I catch these lines and give them a field for action. The results are drawings in which the lines appear in bundles and groups: they may cover whole surfaces, or else meander singly. The lines themselves are the protagonists, coming from somewhere, interacting in the square of the picture, running on somewhere else. Perhaps to the next picture.

The drawings with crayon on asphalt are commentaries on street markings, or gaps or holes in the road. I take photographs to document these temporary drawings on the surface of  the ground.
