What is geographic abstraction?

"Psychogeography
and ''drifting'' are fundamental to my art"

I am very attentive to senses as they relate to place & environment and explore multiple ways of unleashing the subconscious imagination through abstract mind maps.

 

As the blurry boundary between perception and experience always inspired me, I am interested in the randomness of emotion by imaging contemporary art based on colors or graphic compositions.

 

​I create my own rules and imagine the effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the behavior of myself & individuals using the cartography and topography codes.

Why city influences interconnections with nonhumans (objects, animals)

I am living, working in NY and I am fascinated by the state of being connected with each other, also with nonhumans. We totally ignore and even hide the impact of their inwardness, their mind, and their subjective capacity on the world we are sharing.

 

Systematically exploring the relationship between emotion and place permits to reveal the way in which different kinds of places can elicit specific feelings and memories.

 

By painting or taping abstract images of spiritual or moral dilemmas about ethical reasoning, values & choices in life, my art reveals​ more and more these interwoven systems of humans & nonhumans.

"The behavioral impact of the nonhuman world
in urban places"

How it becomes source of my creative process?

"Emotions generate
a shape of a map but it's more than a map"

I use urban or natural environments to emphasize playfulness and "drifting" in my art practice and imagine the ways in which people, nature, and objects can interact with one another to form more or less complex compositions that operate as a map of our emotions or feelings.

 

The process is similar to random drifting through my thoughts, guided by whim and an awareness of how different mental states draw me in or repel me.

 

The artistic concept is the result of constant research of internal mind maps using myself as a data collection device to reach the nonhuman subjective capacity.

Spatial representation of emotions

I am still searching the point at which psychology & geography collide in art related to the impact of urban and natural places.

The environment changes our collective or personal behavior and perceptions.

It becomes now an inexhaustible data collection device full of various accesses to the nonhuman world.

Using a different type of colored tapes & adhesives permits me to expand my art to new materials into innovative perspectives.
