To meet the sphinge in the loneliness of the forest. Here, it is the process of SURVIVAL which is represented by means of metaphorical symbols transposed in the matter. It is a kind of mandala of tables whose there is neither beginning nor end. One can locate there elements concerning the release of the reflex of survival, on lived of the survivor and also, on his context and his tools of survival. That, it does not matter the release of the process as such because it can be different for each one: divorce, job loss, accident, disease, losses or major changes of all kinds, etc. One will gather all these release under only one symbol: "Sphinge". Because, it is it which poses the enigma to be solved under penalty of dead... physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Recovery... It is also the survival of materials for those used in the tables in relief. The moceaux ones of wood and metal come from houses of the Mount-Royal Plate (Montreal P.Q.) which were in the process of restoration. Some of those were old of more than 100 years. These materials which were intended for the rebus now have a new life through these works. And, which acts as fabric in these tables is in fact old re-used sugar bags.
