Stony issue

 “Let it be. I’d rather carve stones…”

 
My first readings as a child got started with the discovery of Greek
mythology: a borderless domain that is never exhausted. It is a fabulous,
mysterious, intriguing world, intrinsically identified with the sea, air
and land. These three materials have taken roots in my soul.
It was in this way that I felt the need within me to try and “iconize”
principles and values that were being lost in the course of time.
However, greek mythology does not represent solely the ancient times
but on the contrary, it is the principal science of imagination and
of primary surrealism.

When Homer (8th Century BC) has Ulysses descend to the heart of Hades
in the context of a Nekyia, this is nothing else but
the sonorous metaphor of his human existence in order that he might
be saved and receive sagacity, he has to plunge into the unfathomable
depths of his “ego”, which is a heritage leading us to the “Minotaur’s
free association” of contemporary poets.

When one observes my works, one ascertains that they are all completely
different from each other and retain their characteristic singularities
in their movement and projection. A whole whose diachrony emerges from
knowledge and leads to myth, to fairy tale and surrealism is thus formed.

However and above all, each and every work is my inner cry addressed to
every individual who is respectful of the past, creates the present and
envisages the future times.
