This set of engravings was made using the technique of etching on copper plate. It consists of a group of two engravings printed on the same paper. There are two prints of this set, but their composition is different, which means that we cannot really speak of a multiple even if the technique is indeed that of engraving. The principle of proliferation is at the basis of this work. On the one hand, the engraving plates behave like modules of an exponential printing protocol. For the moment, only two plates are part of the system, but it could be extended to new plates, which will give rise to new compositions, and so on. On the other hand, the graphic principle itself, of biomorphic inspiration, is one that invades, proliferates, colonizes, behaves autonomously, like an animal, a plant... Even if one could say that the drawing is figurative, borrowing from the formal register of the algae or the plant, it is only an imaginary evocation: it is indeed by drawing from this register in a free and non-realistic way that I allow my drawing to extend, to multiply, to take its autonomy in order to proliferate within the plate, the paper...

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.
