“The sculptor is the one who shows what is already contained in the material”. Michelangelo
For 16 years, my artistic practice is oriented towards sculpture and more especially woodcarving. During walks, the eye detects pieces of trees just waiting to be expressed: branches, trunks or roots... This encounter with the material is crucial, it initiates a creative connection between the wood and my ability to read it, which allows me to make its original pre-registred lines and shapes, visible to other persons. My artwork borns with this correspondence, in direct carving, thanks to the wood lines.
