The artist models his elements in concave or convex form, but also in the form of disks. The wood and acrylic paint give a perfectly smooth rendering that invites to touch. The juxtaposition of these small pieces is done in an order more and more chaotic as the years pass and his work develops. Repetitively rigorously constructed structures, follow more intuitive reliefs, impressed with a certain emotion that corrects the strict geometrical rule.
