The still life series "Meat is the common zone of man and beast, their zone of indistinguishability, it is this "fact", this very state where the painter identifies himself with the objects of his horror or compassion" - Gilles Deleuze Francis Bacon, Logique de la sensation. For this series, my graphic work, almost topographical, gives meadows an abstract, gestural and nervous interlacing, like graphic capillarities, landscapes... From afar, the drawing is hyperrealist. The nerve of this work would be the opposition between a "beautiful" way and a "filthy" subject. With this opposition, I try to touch the sublime: what is beautiful and scary at the same time. There is, as a filigree, a great respect for the beast, perhaps an attempt to give it back its sacredness, to pay attention to it, a child's fascination for its "animation" (animal in Greek, it is what is animated, what has a soul). With this work, I try to reconnect with the sumptuary function of the work of art. I have a particular tenderness for this drawing: it is the first of the series. An owl owl had made its air in the roof of my farm, and the chicks jumped out of the air a few weeks after their birth. Not knowing what to do, I took them in. They died within days. I then learned that it is the normal process for a youngster to jump out of the air to learn how to fly, with the mother's encouragement, and I should never have interfered. Dead of guilt, I found nothing else to do but draw them to pay my last respects.

I mainly present my graphic work on Kazoart. Indeed, for the past 8 years, I have never stopped questioning drawing, in a way where paper becomes a body, a territory, a "milieu". Sometimes it is the paper itself that becomes a drawing, as I cut it, burn it, I present here different series: - The lace series (in progress) - The erotic drawings series ("cut" and "burn") (in progress) - The disaster series (mainly Syria) - The still life series As well as some special works, in these series, we always find an ambiguity, a fascinated and insurgent look on a world that I can hardly bear. I point, with the tip of my pen, sometimes the unspeakable, sometimes the micro-drama, sometimes the illness or the state of love. My subjects are not always easy, sometimes terrible, but always treated with delicacy, the virtuosity of the facture "trapping" the gaze that would usually turn away. I try to replay this question of the sublime: what is beautiful and frightening at the same time. Even when my work gets tender, there is a cut, a burn, that tries to take care of the more ambiguous tone of the subject.
