"To create is to exist." - R.Laforestrie

Lives and works in the Limousin region.

 

​ “Mineral imprints of volcanic stones. Plant prints of tree bark, roots and rhizomes. Imprints of life. Inked imprints to anchor oneself, root oneself, transform oneself These pressures, these plant and mineral imprints of matter on matter have left traces that resemble writing. The tormented life of plant and mineral elements is expressed. Observing from the outside offers a key to reading the inside. I explore this inside pictorially. The entrails of life, the fossil of time. Touch, imprint and inexorable march of time. I sometimes extend the interior and intimate expression of this natural living thing through automatic vegetalized, performative, unconscious, somatic writings. Guided by natural sounds, electro-acoustic sounds, singing stones, drones of instruments, sounds, songs, which seem to me at the same time earthly, celestial, vibrant, alive, essential. These mineral and plant imprints tell the story of the tree, the wood, the sap, the earth, the roots, the rhizomes, the rock, the lava, the water, the heat and the cold, the erosion of time that passes.. . On the surface, they left light traces, sorts of poetic, sensory, spiritual drawings and calligraphies. The common thread, omnipresent in my work, makes the link between man and nature and reconnects us to the living." HB
