"For me, a painting is an accumulation of multiple knowledge: philosophical, cultural, artistic, social and historical. It is also an awareness of the expression of love that comes from the depths of the soul. Like poetry and music, it brings together the most beautiful feelings of the human being... My last works are an operation of construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction aiming to arouse several visions of the work and to give the occasion of the watch endlessly."
