This table is extracted from a series entitled "Men Sculptures". (attention it is indeed a painting and not a real sculpture) Here a friend represented in the form of a clay bust, he came to pose for a portrait photo in the studio, which was my work support. Starting from the photo of a person to represent it as a sculpted object, such is the process used in this series. The background is plain and matt, it underlines the subject like the walls of a museum scenography. By using codes of academism and removing clothing, the models are out of their time and have a timeless look. The skin and hair colours are unified with the use of the colours of the sculpture's materials. Does this purified image transform the person into a soulless object or on the contrary does it show the essence of his personality? I wanted to give the appearance of a clay sculpture sketch, I added a few pieces of clay in relief in the lower part of the bust, and gave an effect of fingerprints on the wooden support.

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.
