Sculpting is giving voice to one’s soul, sculpting is staying in time, sculpting is revealing, sculpting is entering and leaving, sculpting is giving life to inertia, sculpting is splitting, sculpting is coming alone and leaving in pairs, sculpting is transforming, metamorphosing, sculpting is freeing, sculpting is a gesture that embraces a movement, sculpting is standing.

I only look for beauty, aesthetics and proportion for each of my sculptures. There is no chance, I don’t cut like "it comes", I see the image, I reproduce it in the stone trying to make sure that, because of my way of doing things better, it captures shadow and light. It can be organic, floral, evocative of a body or one of its curves... etc... But the important thing is the movement and emotion it provides for those who are watching.

When a sculpture is finished I no longer exist, the work done either, only the work must appear, nothing else. It is no longer a stone or a material. It’s a sculpture.
