The fascination of the human face.
I love faces, whether they are real or imaginary. Certain faces, glimpsed in everyday life, seem less real and significant to me than those that I enjoy creating...
I rarely create 'beautiful' faces. I like personalities that have been marked by time, by the ravages of life, by the hazards of fate. Their stories enthrall me.
My work attempts to transpose onto paper, cardboard or canvas the various expressions and identities that populate my imagination, between the figurative and the abstract, between the real and the dreamlike. As from the depths of an inhabited memory, I conjure up the mysterious characters concealed behind the faces. At the limit, these may be compared with masks whose concentrated, sometimes sublimated lines are the very essence of their personalities, whether these are real or imaginary.
