In this first artistic endeavour I explored the possibilities suggested to me by an 18th century carpenter’s work bench, giving free rein to my visual imagination. The dialectic between this functional object and the vivid emotions it inspired in me opened up an infinite range of possibilities, such as a painter beholds when standing in front of a blank canvas. These artworks express my creative vision and reflect my sensibilities. Their complex ornamentation endows each one of them with deep meaning. Inspired by the noble character of different types of wood, I used various combinations of material (matches, string, rattan, leather, etc.) to give substance to my work and emphasise the importance of messages expressed by simple means. I then added scenographic elements using pine resin, beeswax and paint, in an attempt to penetrate the very soul of the raw material. Drawing, painting, sculpture and engraving are all an integral part of my work. I adorned the feet and ends of most pieces with bronze, in a paradoxical juxtaposition of the precious and the plain. The work took twelve months to complete and I have called it… “Pursuit of Happiness”
