Sociology is the study of the relationships, actions and social representations by which societies are formed. My work aims to understand how individuals interact with each other and how social relationships are transformed. My different works draw a parallel on the mechanisms that govern relationships between individuals. I study social phenomena and behaviors but also the evolution of our society in the way of communicating. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world in which I live. I don’t limit myself to using just one medium because inspiration and ideas can change but the concept remains the same. Each piece I create is simultaneously an extension of the past where I come from and what I learned, but also a glimpse of my future work. Using paintings, photos, sculptures or even canvas prints, my work examines the world in perpetual motion.
