Today mankind only leads a superficial existence empty of a deeper meaning. Our lives are of anxiety without points of reference nor values. We live in fear terrified that one may discover our flaws. We hide our feeling fearing that society might hold them against us. We burrow under a shell, toughening at the touch of others as we believe it makes us look stronger
Ours hearts turn slowly into stone as does our bodies.
In this series « Statue » I choose self-portrait to get in touch with my emotions as deeply as I could. I wanted to describe a lonely being split in two parts, one shaped in a cold and insensitive form by society, the second trying to fight back to keep the warmth of humanity. A single créature : half human half statue.
