Lives and works in Brussels
Photography is and has always been for me the ideal medium to express emotions. The particular energy brought by light and colour is vital both in my private and professional life. Light, as the only form of energy we can see, presents itself as colour. My photographs allow the viewer and the creator to explore feelings through abstraction. I see photography very much like a painter and I use my camera like a brush.
My world of photography has developed into four major themes: pictorial, kinetic, optic and urban traces. Each body of work takes on its own rhythms.
Progressively since 2011, I have become a more global artist; by extending – with the help of my team – the possibilities of photography and associating it to other media and design applications:
– In 2011, realization of my first monumental installation, Metamorphosis.
– In 2013, creation of my first sculptures, Crescend’O and Délivrance.
– In 2015, launch of my first functional design creation: Destination.
– In 2017, I started also to work with my team on larger architectural projects.
Photography will always be at the very heart of my work. And, with the spirit of a scientist, I enjoy pushing its boundariesever farther and further!
My abstract artwork is about catching the vital energy supplied by light and bringing it magnified to the viewers.
Following my near death experience in my childhood, light became later naturally the central theme and the driving force as well of all my creations.
By making my camera travel in time and space, I create fairy-like imaginary worlds mostly from ordinary objects. I use my camera as a purely experimental tool. The metamorphosis of the subject is achieved directly during the capture without the need for computerized retouching or effects.
The emotion is central in my photographs. I take a deliberately aesthetic and sensorial approach to bring additional wellbeing to the audience.
My project is to mix photography with other forms of Art.
