My work has as its main theme the landscape, not as a testimony of a territory but rather as a set of questions about what landscape is. It seems to me that this one is both cultural and emotional. When Turner or Corot paint a landscape, what touches us are the emotions that the artist has put into his work.
In the same way Rothko offers us inner journeys with all references to colour and surface, two terms that could define landscape in my series "Landscape from nowhere" and "December 1999", my work develops the concept of order and disorder in the landscape, namely that everything that refers to order is nourished by our cultural and emotional experiences that call upon individual (memories) and collective (history) memory.
The landscape is essentially expressed by the crest of the mountain, the horizon line, the colour, the material; my work is harmonious, aesthetic and balanced. Disorder refers to the natural destruction of the landscape: Storm, earthquake... My work is then more random, made from wallpapers and cut out or torn; references to the landscape disappear because I want to express the essence of it, its nature, the very nature that we seek to dominate without succeeding.
