This Paperwall series began with the discovery of original plans. They are the root, the base of these compositions. At the beginning of the creative process, these plans are an imprint, a ghostly form (I am thinking of Clay Ketter's work, his photos of the foundations of destroyed houses which remain the only marks of these disappeared habitats). These plans symbolize the house, our corner of the world, our Cosmos in the words of Gaston Bachelard in his work "La poétique de l'espace". It is a place of refuge, a protection in which man will be able to dream, a waking dream that takes us back to childhood. My waking dream, inspired by the memory of the place, is the second stage of the process. I use wallpaper. I choose it among papers found at flea markets, dated papers. My memory of the place directs this choice. The paper plays a graphic and memorable role. Then I tear it, in control, either to reveal the layer underneath (art of palimpsest) or to show a scratch, an attack of time that I can sublimate by filling it with a bright colour or a golden thread embroidery (art of kintsugi). A duality sets in: wanting to show and wanting to hide. In this canvas, by a miracle, birds have appeared and in particular a hummingbird, a bird symbolizing energy and joy of life.
