[EN] For its way to reveal the texture of the paper, as well as the material on itself, the graphite is the ideal medium to achieve the atmosphere I want to bring out in my artworks. It allows a full and obvious light and shadows play. It's a restless backward and forward movement between light and shadows, one existing only in relation to the other. The white of the paper, and light grays due to the graphite's wash, aren't just emphasizing the subject in my artworks, but actually give them their meanings and density. The merging blacks and grays offer countless landscapes, discreet but real, awaiting for one's imagination to get into.

My inspirations find their origins in nordic and celtic mythology, as the symbols they carry. I'm fascinating by the omnipresence of this savage Nature, full of ageless creatures playing by unknown laws to us. These forests, these sanctuaries, made out ancient trees endowing knotted roots and branches, are talking about old times. i'm looking forward to these primordial places, and for the worrying serenity that spring out of it.
Very young, I went into a forest...never to leave.

I currently participate into different shows in the Krab Jab Studio gallery in Seattle, in Nucleus Gallery in Los Angeles, and in Matrix Fine Art in Albuquerque. My artworks can also be found in some festivals in France.

[FR] Pour sa façon de révéler le grain du papier, la matière et la texture qu'il apporte, le graphite est le médium idéal pour l'ambiance que je veux amener dans mes travaux. Il permet un rendu plein et évident des jeux d'ombres et de lumières. C'est un incessant va et vient entre l'ombre et la lumière, l'une n'existant que par rapport à l'autre. Le blanc du papier, les gris légers offerts par un lavis de graphite ne se contentent pas de seulement mettre en lumière le sujet même de mes travaux, mais leur donnent leur densité. Les fondus de gris et de noirs offrent à l'imagination de nombreux paysages, discrets mais présents, attendant l'oeil de celui qui voudra s'y projeter.

Mes inspirations trouvent leur source dans la mythologie nordique et celtique, et la symbolique qu'elles véhiculent. Je suis fasciné par l'omniprésence de cette Nature sauvage et élémentaire, peuplée de créatures sans âges et aux lois inconnues. Les forêts sanctuaires, aux arbres millénaires dotés de racines et branches noueuses racontent ces temps anciens. Je recherche ces espaces primordiaux, pour l'atmosphère d'inquiétante sérénité qui s'en dégage.
Tout jeune, je suis entré dans une forêt...pour ne plus jamais en sortir.

J'expose actuellement mes travaux dans les galeries Krab Jab Studio à Seattle, Nucleus à Los Angeles, et Matrix Fine Art à Albuquerque. On peut retrouver mes travaux dans certains festivals en France.

Thank you for your kind words Sanna!
When I see your Trolls and influences, I can't stop thinking that it would be a shame not to see more of them from you :) (Smile)  (the world needs more Trolls...and more traditional art too! :D (Big Grin) )
