Fawn, aquatint and etching on paper, 2001

“Drawings, prints, sculptures, videos, photographs; and I make tapestry.  I just go where I want. I follow where the work wants to go”

“Going back to other people’s works, I remember that I went to see the Apocalypse Tapestries in Angers in 1976. It is one of the great things that happened in my life”

“I do not need to position myself or to define myself in any ideological way. Creativity is just the capacity of consciousness.

It is a way to synthesize. It is a good language to ground your consciousness in a condensed manner that you can see physically outside yourself. It is like an evidence.

I am not the most self-reflecting person. I am more just voracious”
