-Creative process ::
At first I started by carving the SNCF (French national railway) wood : I recovered abandoned SNCF woods that had a century and I made totems.
While searching for these woods I discovered the beautiful pieces of metal that were attached : rail stools, rail screws, rail toads that I incorporated into my creations.
I continued my approach by daily visits to the scrap yards around my workshop; I made friends and I can visit their sites where I find wonders. I let myself be
seduced by sometimes very bulky forms that I bring back in my workshop. I keep precious traces of shocks, rust, corrosion and original colors : these objects
have lived. This multitude of pieces is classified by them e: tools, springs, wheels, chains, cranks, rail saddles, concrete bars, elongated shapes, forks …
On an idea : current events, exhibition, traveling, met …I will draw on my stock to realize my project. For a time that can last several months I will daily change
the parts composing the sculptur : the hair, arms, the head, pedestal ….Then one day the unexpected srises. I feel how to assemble them to cause a visual shock.
I like my sculptures to be through, they do not block the view, illuminated they project forms.
