Biography

Depuis que je sais marcher, je ne pense qu'à créer, peu importe les matériaux; dessiner, peindre, modeler, couler du plâtre, découper, coller
.
Les quelques musées de beaux-arts visités pendant mon enfance et plus tard, mon adolescence, ont laissé dans ma mémoire et dans mon cœur une trace d'émerveillement ineffaçable.

La vie et la condition humaine, ce que peuvent vivre les humains de merveilleux ou de terrible, me touche profondément et a une grande influence sur mes émotions et réflexions.

Les visages, les mains, les pieds, tiennent une place importante dans mon travail d'artiste (avoir les pieds sur terre, les mains qui soutiennent et aiment, le visage et les yeux, exprimant tant de choses, regardant vers le passé, l'avenir ou vers l'être aimé).

Je m'efforce de sculpter les sentiments qui émergent de l'amour, de la fraternité, de l'amitié, des peines et souffrances.

Pour cela, je ne me sers pas seulement de mes mains et de ma sueur, mais aussi de mon cœur, de mes rêves, de mon vécu, comme une expression de l'âme.

Au départ la forme brute de la pierre guide mon burin vers l'inspiration et la création.

En parallèle, je recherche la beauté esthétique et l'équilibre dans la composition, laissant une partie de pierre brute, afin de laisser une place à l'imaginaire, puis aux sentiments et émotions de chacun. Read less

Exposition, Château de Fontaine-Henry.


This is how I was carving in front of the visitors at the exhibition this summer 2010 - Château de Fontaine-Henry- Normandy- France.


The Stones


BLACK SERPENTINE
The stone Black Iron Serpentine is one of the hardest and darkest stones found in Zimbabwe. Black Iron Serpentine gets its name because of the deposits of iron found in it. The stone is capable of the most amazing finish that shines a black lustre resembling the black opal.
Rated at 4.0-5.0 on the universally used Mohs hardness scale, Serpentine's remarkable hardness guarantees its durability and because of its fine finish, is highly sought after.






SERPENTINE
Serpentine stone boasts an array of colors that cannot be described. No one stone is alike. The reason for this is the many mineral inclusions within the stone giving its unique color variation. The name "Serpentine" comes from an association with the characteristics of a serpents skin. Serpentine is the most commonly used stone because of the varying hardness for both master sculptors, as well as his apprentice.Serpentine rates between 2.5 to 5.5, depending on mineral inclusions, on the universally used Mohs hardness scale,
a diamond rates at 10.


STEATITE
Steatite is a natural soft stone that falls under the general catagory of soapstone. Also commonly referred to as Rapoka stone in Zimbabwe. It's remarkable qualities have made Steatite one of the most widely used minerals on earth. Over 10 million years old, steatite is a natural mineral prized since ancient times for its durability, workability, beautiful character and ability to retain and radiate heat and resist chemicals. Native cultures, the world over, have carved steatite into vessels, art objects, memorial and cultural items.
Steatite is found on every continent in the world with the possible exception of Antarctica. It has been used by natives people the over world for thousands of years. Carved steatite items have been found in the tombs of Pharos, in the igloos of the far north, in temples and palaces of China and India, in the mountains and river valleys of the Americas and the arid plains of Africa.
Mineral Composition
Talc 40-50%, magnesite 40-50%, penninite 5-8%
Talc makes steatite workable. Magnesite and penninite make it tough and durable.
