Nature has always been an inexhaustible source of inspiration as well as a source of inner appeasement and has a special place in my life. On the grounds of my Stoneham residence, just before the new millennium, I started playing with stones, erecting several Inukshuk. What was initially just a hobby son turned into a passion. It is through my assemblages of pebbles polished by the tides that I started to expose. In my opinion, art is diverse and is everywhere around us.
After several years in contact with stone, I began to create different pieces to fully express my creativity. Since 2014, I integrate driftwood in my Inukshuk sculptures presented on a bed of pebbles, but also uses it as the starting point of unique inspiration.
Year round between Québec and Gaspé along the banks of the majestic St. Lawrence River, I patiently look for the elements with which I create different pieces. I select pieces, marked by nature, by time, by the seasons, modeled by the tides that all worked as invisible craftsmen to shape stones and driftwood.
When I take one of these elements, I only have a vague idea of what it will become. I reveal the veining of wood or release the beauty of a rough stone. I use the elements according to their texture, their hue, their particular shape, playing with balance and perspective, assembling them, sculpting them into unique objects.
