Artist Statement
Black on white, stories are written, and in my case, cut. I invent cities, worlds and situations. They are memories, associations of word ideas, observations and thoughts that unfold in improbable juxtapositions. Each observer makes his or her own story in this accumulation of real or imaginary lives to remember the past and foresee the future.

Wether automatic writing or premeditated scenes, images pass through words. The creative inspiration comes from a text, a poem, or from a concept that I reduce to a mere title, or an amalgam of deformed words. Part of the pleasure is finding words that are identical in French and in English, or words with different meaning in different languages: word play, translation add complexity and meaning.

In my work of cuttings, artist books and public art, where they are full and empty shapes, everything must fall in place. One’s place in the world, one’s place in the city, one’s place in his/her body. In my graphic style, windows are used not to see out but in. The cutting blade traces labyrinths and poetic meandering. Shadow suggest danger but also opportunities for new adventures.

Everything is time and space. The viewer is invited to find his or her own way in these worlds.
