“My works focus on what I have and not on what is missing”

They are an expression of the myriad of possibilities offered by the limited materials available.

My works are crafted from what I have, what comes to me, what I look for and what I find…

I try not to buy anything.

Chance provides me with materials; then, I let them guide the assembly process. The results are almost always unforeseeable.

It’s like a game of seeking and gathering.
