Artists are expected to ‘state' something about their oeuvres. Well, I do not belong to that category of contemporary artist who is intent on subjecting the observer to a rude shock - simply for the sake of being "different" at all costs.
Once an idea is born, there is a certain pleasure in the obedience of the hands to the eye as they translate the concept into reality. That is why I do it. Nature always has been my greatest source of inspiration. Tropical fish in an aquarium, the wings of an Amazonian butterfly, scientific matter: here man has to accede that his imagination falls short of nature's ingenuity. This is particularly true when one takes a close-up view of nature's organic creations. Magnification permits the artist to communicate delicate design qualities which escape the viewer's attention in the object's real size.
