In sculpture as in painting, I seek, on the one hand, vitality, and on the other, gentleness, which for me is close to a certain serenity.
My drawings in pastel, are never posed. I sketch the pose, looking for the tension in the gesture... I capture the subject visually, preferably in movement. I like to analyse in a fraction of second the line of force witch is given off the moment. To make the emotion sping forth requires a lot of pratice !
Painting offers more leisure for reflection, but is also a kind of combat between the material and the idea.
To sketch from life brings us as close as possible to the energy given off by the model.
