I am a French visual artist based in the UK, my practice is centred around photography and painting.

Historically my work focuses on digital manipulation, turning one subject into another and claiming to be its true nature.

This is to explore the power of persuasion an image can have, especially when it is introduced as part of an archive or as part of a project of scientific nature.

 

Through my work, I investigate the definition of the truth, in a time of information warfare and where digital manipulations are getting more sophisticated with every advancement of new technology.

 

Recently, I have begun to explore abstract paintings through the lens of my camera capturing small details which once removed from their context, look similar to images taken by satellites from Earth and elsewhere. Through this approach, I explore the bridges between truth, impression, creativity and imagination.
