"Is there anything more beautiful than the human body?
The unfathomable variety of its shapes, the mysterious matter beneath the skin, its necessity in the making of all art forms.
I’ve drawn bodies since forever. They were first clothed, in extravagant Marvel superhero costumes or imaginary French haute-couture, until I trained in fashion design in Paris and had weekly life drawing classes for five years. The naked body, a blank canvas for every fashion designer, always was the main subject of my personal work. Tracing its contours-and the voids it creates-has become my conception of the purest art form. In a state of complete focus, my hand instinctively records what my eyes choose to see. Sometimes, in the most fluid moments of creativity and concentration, I can lose myself in those lines, and that is the most intoxicating feeling.
The series of drawings I’m showing here is untitled désincarnés (disembodied). It suggests a reflexion on how one’s perception of his/her own body varies according to one’s state of mind, and how we sometimes can feel as if our bodies stop belonging to us."
