The work remembers what has once been seen or felt or thought.


I am a painter. I grew up into a family of architects and studied architecture. 

In my practice, drawings and architectural notations describe and predict things I want to build: abstract concepts to be materialised. I paint to create a space within which I can move between control, accident and discovery. In the process of assembling and making work, I continually remodel a relationship between the parts and the whole, fragments and a sense of vastness.


I work in series. I often feel, once a painting is achieved,that I am not entirely finished with it. Leaving the absorbing painting activity, pausing the work for a day or a few years, the painting starts to look and feel like things I have known or done, places I have been to… With these echoes, I find myself pulling and manipulating, as if in a theatre of memory and experience from my life. 

How did I create Jesus’ on Fire…What really happened?

It was at first a T shape that I identified within Ponte Vecchio painting, an abstract Sea painting I made in 2011. Since then, Ponte Vecchio induced 3 new oil paintings and the print Jesus’s on fire. A first cropping manipulation was at the origin of  ‘Brother & Sister’, a diptych painting made in 2012, the year after my parents died. Since then, I went on to identify the architect T tool and  Christian Crosses shapes in my own work. And that is how Sister became Brother, then Jesus’s on fire. 

A Click. A single daydream like click on the neon button in Picasa and I saw Jesus’s on fire, the hope and the fear, the anger and the fear, and the beauty of showing it out.
