ARTIST STATEMENT

My work questions the impact that the association of ancient characters/signs has on our imagination.

 

Based on the study of historical cultural heritage I have created a collection of signs which are inspired, among others, by ancient alphabets.  

 

For me, signs do represent a matchmaker between writing and abstraction. Writing enables the reader to elicit precise mental images. On the other hand, signs are not dependent on a particular language and therefore allow mental associations of a different order to that of written languages.

Most of these signs have no relation to reality and are distinguished by a degree of abstraction.

The final result is a composition of signs that I freely associate. A title is given to the whole.

The composition is then left to the gaze of the art lover who will decide for himself whether or not to appropriate it.
