«STONE PASSION»

I fell in love with stones, especially white stones....
Creation is like a meditation.
I connect myself directly to the pure life essence, take away as much as necessary to
translate in a most minimalistic shape, the spirit of the marvelous life force which the white marble accumulated during its 50 million years of its formation.....

Creation, an integral sensual experience!
When I create the moment becomes an integral sensual experience where I feel, touch, participate and communicate with the Universe. My feet firmly planted on the ground I let my hands translate the overwhelming flow of emotions that I feel when confronted to the incredible force of nature and life. My hands work on their own to captivate the moment in a fluid form allowing the fleeting moment to become eternal.

These bodies then received a new aura when the foundry released them in different shades of bronze and I felt joy and pleasure immersing my fingers in clay, wax, silicone and plaster to prepare the molding casts.

I feel almost disrespectful the first time I begin to chisel away at this bloc of pure strength. I fall in love with these stones. I let myself feel their attraction and close my eyes to let them guide me and share their strengths and secrets. They speak to me, inspire me and fill me with their life energy. The name of the sculpture appears to me in the very beginning before I have even begun discovering and uncovering its shape.
My favorite are the white stones for their candor, softness and transparency. They represent purity, naivety and a constant beginning.
When I sculpt I am connecting myself directly to the pure essence of life - the alchemy between the shape, the matter, the sensation, the idea and the spirit. I simplify, remove and try to uncover what is essential. What remains of the matter are the curves, the life and the energy. When I achieve this, the fleeting moment h
