In my practice, I question the imagination, myths and history that feed my inspiration and create links with reality by producing graphic and pictorial "spaces" with paint. Both chaotic and organized microcosms, these "landscapes" express themselves in multitude and profusion. Water and Color are two mediums I use for seeing better and representing the world. Then I draw, I intertwine threads, I connect the elements to evoke one of the oldest activities of humanity, weaving, whose symbolic value is founding for our societies. I also practice engraving, photography, video and installation. Currently, my work has its roots in the myth of Arachne taken from the Metamorphoses of the poet Ovid. A feminine myth from which I draw the threads to weave them today under the light of our contemporary world, I question the means of expression of women and more particularly of women artists. This project is very large and will require me several months of research and work in different forms. Eventually, I would like to expose it in its entirety.
