Artist statement My engraving works are inspired by the organic environment and the living world. Also, they are built around the notion of abstraction. Based on observations of nature, the seabed or the plant world, the engraved surfaces are composed through several random encounters of lines, solids and shapes of varying sizes. In this development, they particularly form a view around the proliferation of an organic universe. In this cellular architecture the initial idea is transformed and develops a new surface of reflection, an abstract image.

Skills: etching
