"This painting is part of a series entitled "Men Sculptures". Here is a portrait of a stranger whose face emerges from a block of granite. Starting from the photo of a person to represent it as a sculpted object, this is the process implemented in this series. The background is plain and matt, it underlines the subject in the same way as the walls of a museum scenography.

By using academic codes and removing clothing, the models are out of their time and have a timeless look. The colors of the skin and hair are unified with the use of the colors of the materials of the sculpture. Does this refined image transform the person into a soulless object or does it reveal the essence of his or her personality?" - Cindy Nikolic

Born in 1983 in Paris, I live and work in Savigny sur Orge in Essonne.

My favourite subjects are facial expressions - which I have studied extensively - including the anatomy of muscles and the different movements they allow. An expression is only a moment, it is also a vector of emotions, and that is what has always fascinated me. I found in painting, a way not to freeze, but to amplify an emotion to communicate it.

I work in series of paintings or drawings. In general, everything starts from a meeting. I can also be very inspired by music and performing arts. When I explore a subject, I like to look at it from a rational point of view and feel it to experience its pure emotion. I very often start from dictionary definitions to refer to a reliable source, and I superimpose my feelings on it, this is what starts my reflection: I feed myself on the discrepancies that can result from it. I take drawn, written or photographic notes that I use as material to move on to painting.
