Since ancient times, humans have used earth colours to represent the world and its relationship to it. Whether used in prehistoric frescoes or in the first Buddhist icon, we derive our first visual language from the earth.

Both permanent and changing, the earth enabled both its oriental and occidental artists, to celebrate, interpret and leave their traces. Enriched by my greater understanding of earth, I sense how it holds its primitive memories, how it witnessed transitions, and how it nourished the legends of humanity.

To use this ancient method which calls upon the earth colours to create images, is to make a testimonial to our present life and that of the past. Our own earth contains within itself the capacity for beauty.
