My approach to drawing is intuitive. Using lines or circles, or by saturating surfaces, I wish to create a space in which full and empty forms meet. I do not seek to represent objects or a particular material.
Using fine lines, drawn with ink or grey pencil, I would like to capture the viewer to plunge him or her into contemplating an A4 or large format.
First of all, the grey pencil: the different tones of this technique, dry and bold, push me to explore all its facets. The geometrical or organic shapes delimiting the textures thereby created stem from my observations of nature or architecture.
Next, my ink works pursue my initial pencil-based explorations. I use simple elements, which are repeated to interlace diverse forms until an organic material emerges. Variations of blues blend to form a relief. The resulting forms are maps of imaginary islands.
Finally, the line drawings in black ink explore the fragility of simple gestures, repeated until they form a basic outline or screen.
I live and work in Winterthur, Switzerland.
