“I have always done figurative, I like to be able to copy a form that exists, something that I see and that I want to touch. I’m very attracted to the body gesture and facial expression.
The transmission of emotions through the posture of the face is a universal language, it spreads between those who feel it and those who perceive it. A sculpture (which is actually an object) can make you feel like her, think about what she is thinking, remember something you experienced and, I insist, it is just an object. The gestures of a human body occupy a whole spectrum of emotions that as spectators we can translate, because we empathize with a fellow man. But we translate the gesticulation of an animal as something more basic: it is sad, it is happy, it is scared… however the alert in the gesture of a rabbit that hears a noise or the appetite in the foreshortening of a hyena that looks askance, we cannot detect it in humans. And that attracts me enormously. “
