“Landscape, environment, place; trace, fragment, essence; erosion, wear and passing of the time: light, clarity, wind, water... These are key concepts in my work, in my identity and origin. Parameters that I'm always tied to, keeping me in a constant balance, and allowing me to work with order and harmony. ISLAND, as a reality and metaphor. The SEA, my teacher, father and creator of ancient treasures. NATURE, mother of the raw material and the elemental energy. With all this combined, and harmony with the material I work intuitively and spontaneously; visceral and fortuitous. So the result, or rather the response, appears by itself and by surprise. Casually like the SEA: always, never different, but never, ever the same.”
