To Set the Scene
I’m totally carried away by ornaments and would like to praise them. I want that what we usually consider as free, superficial and incidental, simple element flattened on a structure becomes prolific, fertile and abounding…
That’s why I try to burst ornaments. I want to show that ornamentation is not a poor varnish but the product of something. Those also take on the role of an organic and immanent activity.
My goal is to suggest a perfect harmony between the ornament and its structure, to create a fertile structure able to grow a decor. I also want to give consistency, thickness to ornaments considered as too oppressive.
I also propose three types of ornamentations, organized in three chronological and cyclic steps of a vegetable’s growth: germination, development and pollination.
