From a white limestone rock gleaned during a hike in the Corbières massif in the Aude, this image of a female body seemed to me to be inscribed in the natural material. The line of force of the hips was already crossing the stone, as if it was potentially alive, and I wanted to keep this vibration which resonated with my imagination. I had to limit myself to making only the necessary gestures, to reveal the image in a pure dialogue between the plasticity of this millennial form and the image it evoked. I had to think carefully about each of my gestures under a burning sun, between a thyme plant and a brown bramble. Not to think of all the previous failures, all the stones of which I lost the vibration... To succeed in articulating a representation of carnal life with a mineral vibration.
Carved in white and varnished limestone, fixed on a varnished solid oak base.
