about the paintings
emotion: I begin my paintings with unpredictable, uncontrollable drops of ink, allowing spontaneity and form to take shape on the paper as it wishes. Logic: after the spontaneity has spoken (i.e. the ink dries), I add geometric shapes with pen or marker to enhance and structuralize the ungoverned ink formations. Finally, I christen the paintings, choosing one word (le mot juste) for its name—a process that often resembles a Rorschach Test.
