Statement

I am often referred to as the Hairtist, because I have a predilection for using synthetic hair in my work.
Hair Brut is a closer definition as my creations could be Art Brut using hair exclusively.
Creating strong symbolic evocations and infinite creative power, I joyfully manipulate it in all its forms for installations, or crafted objects.
Tamed or savage and in unending combinations of color blends, hair constantly challenges me. Handling these strange threads requires a constant defiance of control and patience.
Freed from the confining shapes of human heads and ‘hairstyling’ and taken as a crude, ruthless material, it offers an amazing world of possibilities. The challenge to push the boundaries ever further, to deconstruct and reinvent the use of this primitive material inspires me to continue exploring the art of Hair Brut.
