Artist's statement

Constantly searching, I haven't yet escaped the feeling of restlessness.
Yearning for the incredible discovery.
My practise becomes a source of recording memories, of nostalgia.

My attraction to the ocean.
Mysterious entity that shapes, conditions the land.
Contradictions, seclusion, meditative.

Evocation of movement, time by layering.

To catch yourself, living.
