My artistic background is based on journeys to Italy (Ravenna, Venice…) as well as observing, then assisting my uncle from Catalonia, Spain in realizing large-scale mosaics. In my work “Place del’Etoile”, I have associated the mosaic technique with geographical observations of terrain and land: Iuse curved and geometric shapes of ceramic tiles that I apply on organic shapes made of clay or stone.
The negative spaces created around the tiles become an independent structure evocatively reminding us of streets or any infrastructural system. Then again optically they appear to be protruding, recalling the image of a fishing net or spider web. At other times, I used Greek mythology as a point of departure. Prometheus with its raw unresolved masculine form is the piece that visually projects its sculptural mass past its physical form the most. The outer shape if not for its skin gives the piece an unexpected sense of balance.
