Born in 1961 in Paris (France), lives and works in Paris and Tuscany (France / Italy)
His work as an artist covers three disciplines: jewellery making, sculpture and painting, which frequently influence each other.
Often a piece of jewellery I have made will “trigger” an installation. The jewellery is always the object that reveals and explains everything, sometimes in a forced or exaggerated manner.
The jewellery decodes the message, while the paintings conceals it.
His work deals with the psychology of opposites: the extreme coarseness of the raw material versus refinement, the mutilating violence of the massive and vulgar versus gracefulness. Very often the precious element of the jewellery is hidden.
